  • To increase the scope of banking services, banks in Vietnam are going digital. In June 2017, TPBank partnered with Scale360, a UK-based fintech company, to launch digital branches branded as LiveBank across the country. Unlike a traditional bricks-and-mortar branch, LiveBank is based on mobile and video banking. Customers can open accounts, apply for loans, and perform transactions by themselves or under the guidance of an agent over video. Meanwhile digital-only bank Timo was launched in March 2016. Account holders are offered banking services including a payment account, a savings account, a debit card, a Mastercard Platinum credit card, loans, and money transfers.

  • Vietnamese banks are supporting growth in the banked population by expanding their services to remote locations. Agribank initiated the mobile van banking project. From January 2018 the bank launched a fleet of 68 mobile banking vans in 62 provinces. The vans can provide the majority of banking products and services, including account opening, debit card issuance, payments and deposits, loan processing, overseas remittances, and insurance.

  • In November 2017 the State Bank of Vietnam passed new regulations on credit cards, restricting their use for ATMs withdrawals. Cash withdrawals using credit cards were caped at VND5m ($220.16) in local currency and VND30m ($1,320.97) in foreign currency. In January 2013 the central bank passed regulation allowing card issuers to charge a fee of VND1,000 ($0.04) per ATM transaction, which rose to VND2,000 ($0.09) per transaction in 2014 and VND3,000 ($0.13) per transaction in 2015. These initiatives are expected to reduce consumers’ dependence on cash and promote electronic payments.
