Conditions can lead to longer wait for service

We strive to provide quick and sound service yet current conditions can in some cases lead to longer wait times than usual. This is because part of Landsbankinn’s employees now work in two groups, on shifts or from home, in accordance with directions from the Director of Health during the Covid-19 outbreak. At the same time, queries and various requests have multiplied, as expected under stressed conditions.
