Bank of Cyprus now allows new customers to easily open an account online and receive a debit card

As part if its drive to improve and speed up customer service, Bank of Cyprus is now offering individuals, who are not currently customers, the ability to open an account through the Bank's website.

The procedure for applying for an account is fast and easy, taking only a few minutes online. Once a savings account has been opened, the Bank will simultaneously issue, free of charge, a Debit Card linked to the account, for fast and secure transactions. In addition, customers can receive a free subscription to 1bank should they wish to, enabling them to safely manage their accounts from home.

Some 25,000 customers aged over 60 and who hold an account with the Bank, have received an SMS on their mobile phone. The SMS informs them that they can accept the issuance of a debit card, free of charge. The response from these customers has been positive.

Over the next days all individuals who are Bank of Cyprus customers will be able to subscribe to 1bank online.

We would also like to recall that current subscribers, who for whatever reason do not have their access codes, may recover their codes online by visiting the 1bank start page.

The 1bank service allows Bank of Cyprus customers to view their account balance at any time, find their IBAN, and gain access to their accounts as well as to all other functions - transfers, payments etc.

For new customers, information on how to open a new account is available on the Bank of Cyprus website at
