Key Product Features
No EFTPOS Fees
This is normally where most transaction accounts really get you with fees on every EFTPOS transaction you make. It can add up pretty quickly. But we’ve packed EFTPOS fees up and hauled them away.
No Monthly Account Fees
While other everyday accounts in PNG charge a monthly fee for this type of account, we’ve removed them in order to make banking more accessible for everyone.
Set Up Balance
We want this account to be accessible for all Papua New Guineans, whether you’ve been banking for years or this is the first account you’ve ever opened. That’s why we’ve set the minimum opening balance at just PGK10.
Kina Visa Debit
When you open a Kina Everyday Account, you also become eligible for a linked Kina Visa Debit Card, simply visit your local branch, join the express lane and receive your instant issued Kina Visa Debit Card. It’s that easy!
What About The Fees?
Good question. Consistent with similar accounts, there is a minimal, per-transaction fee when you use this account for non-EFTPOS transactions like transfers, accessing account statements, making in branch withdrawals and bill paying.

The Kina Everyday Account is a Transaction Account for you to manage your day-to-day banking.
Am I eligible to apply for a cheque book with my Kina Everyday Account?
No. The Kina Everyday Account does not come with a cheque book and we do not issue cheque books if requested for this account.
If I need to withdraw an amount greater than PGK 20,000, how can I do this?
Our staff will assist with the withdrawal to ensure your funds are kept safe. We ask our customers to:
– Identify the purpose of the funds and advise why you’re making the withdrawal, confirmation on who you are paying and for what reason
– Ensure the appropriate signatory on the account is withdrawing the funds
– If the person withdrawing the funds is a third-party to the account holder, our staff will require appropriate ID from the person making the withdrawal and authority from the account holder or holders that the third-party representative can act on their behalf. This can be given in the form of a letter confirming the withdrawal, this must be signed by the account holder. Our staff will review the signature and also contact the account holder to confirm that this is in fact an authorised withdrawal.
How do you help customers with larger deposits?
This varies depending on the nature of the deposit and we would advise you to:
– Always ring ahead to inform the branch the deposit amount and the reason why the deposit is being made. This will save time and ensure you are bringing the right documentation.
– Identify the purpose of the deposit. There are different documents required for various transactions. As an example, for the sale of a car we would require a transfer of ownership document, registration of the vehicle and the sale contract.
– If a deposit is being made on behalf of a company, please provide the necessary sale of goods proof of documentation.
