General

Due to COVID-19, all local banks are required to implement online pre-booking for physical exchange of new notes at our bank branches to facilitate safe distancing measures during the LNY exchange period. Having pre-booking also ensures that those who have made a reservation will be able to exchange notes during the exchange period.

Alternatively, we recommend sending e-Hongbaos through PayNow or PayNow via QR Pay with our UOB TMRW app, allowing the tradition of giving to be contact free, while staying connected to our loved ones even when apart.

UOB customers, except for the elderly aged 60 and above, or customers with disabilities, are required to make an online reservation before heading down to their selected branch to exchange for new notes.

Elderly UOB customers aged 60 and above, as well as customers with disabilities, can walk-in to exchange new notes without an online reservation.

No, this online reservation service of new notes is only available for UOB customers, and on a first-come-first serve basis.
