Opening a Bank Account during lockdown

Posted in Cyprus forum

Hi all. My wife and I are in Cyprus, from South Africa, intending to apply for temp residency (I believe it's also known as a visitors visa) for 1 year minimum. However to do so, we need a bank account, amongst other things. Do you know if there is any way to get a new bank account during lockdown? I've called the major banks, and they say no, but perhaps someone knows of a way?

Alternatively, with the revised lockdown from Monday 4th, might the banks open new accounts then?
Any insight on this topic would be appreciated.
