Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Kina Fixed Deposit Account?
The Kina Fixed Deposit Account is a short-to-medium-term deposit account lodged with a set amount of funds for an agreed term and interest rate. Your funds are then held by Kina Bank for the nominated period and once the period finishes you have the opportunity to withdraw your money or put in back in for another agreed term. The minimum deposit term is 1 month, and the maximum term is 3 years. If you would like longer terms, you’ll need to speak to our team. Interest rates are capped at values from PGK5,000 – PGK99,999 and then PGK100,000 – PGK499,999.

If I am an existing Kina Bank customer, am I eligible to open a Kina Fixed Deposit Account?
Yes. You will still need to visit your local branch and complete the account-opening form and have sufficient funds to meet the minimum account balance of PGK5,000.
Do I receive a Kina Handy Card with my new Kina Tomorrow Fixed Deposit Account?
No. This is because the account is designed to grow your money and your funds have to be committed to the bank for an agreed term no less than a month and no more than 3 years.
What type of account is the Kina Fixed Deposit Account?
This account is seen as a deposit account. With our Kina Fixed Deposit Account, you lock away an amount of money for an agreed length of time (the ‘term’) – that means you can’t access the money until the term is up. In return, you’ll get a guaranteed rate of interest for the term you select, so you’ll know exactly what the return on your money will be.
Am I eligible to apply for a cheque book with my Kina Fixed Deposit Account?
The Kina Fixed Deposit Account does not come with a cheque book and we do not issue cheque books if requested.
