NAB has over 600 branches across Australia.

NATIONAL Australia Bank (NAB) branches across south west Queensland and Australia have been forced to close this afternoon due to reported bomb threats on several sites across the country.

Across the North Coast, the NAB has offices on the Northern Rivers in Kingscliff, Murwillumbah, Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Kyogle, Casino, Lismore and Ballina.

"We did so with the information that we had at the time", a NAB spokesman said in a statement this evening.

UPDATE 6.50pm: We are pleased to advise it is safe to return to NAB branches and BBCs tomorrow from morning.

"As always the safety and security of our customers and colleagues is our priority".

Australia's second-biggest lender said it was working with the police and is inspecting all of its branches and commercial offices to make sure they are safe to return to.

It added that Internet and mobile banking would continue to work as usual.
