ATMs in Kazakhstan

Postby HLJHLJ » Mon Jul 29, 2019 3:53 pm

Does anyone know what the maximum withdrawal is from an ATM in Kazakhstan? At TSE airport, or in town? Is there any ATM/bank that is more likely to work with a foreign card?

I found a post from a couple of years ago which says that you can only get 50,000 T at the airport, but I'm not sure if the information is still current. My bank charges per transaction, so I'd prefer to get as much as possible in one withdrawal.

Thanks!

Think it depends on the bank. Amount should be higher now that tenge lost so much value.

Exchange rates are good in the city, so you could consider taking cash if you prefer.

Never had issues with cards not being accepted in Kazakhstan. In big cities can pay by card everywhere.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know which banks tend to have higher ATM limits? (or which ones to avoid with lower limits!)

Currently most local banks let you withdraw up to 100 000 tenge.
Don't know any atms with higher limits.
I think they could exist but so rare. If you have usd or uero you can bring cash and exchange it. Exchange rates are better at exchange offices than banks.

Also, limits can be set by your card's bank.
Someone said that they could withdraw less amount of money because of their foreign card limitation.
So check with your bank what is your card's limit if you use it to withdraw abroad.

I didn't use an ATM in the airport in the end, but I was able to withdraw 100,000 T from an Altyn machine in town.

Am currently in Nur Sultan. Have only made 1 withdrawal of 50,000 tenge, but 200,000 was a choice on Forte Bank ATM at Best Western Astana Hotel.

I did have some issues with my bank card not being accepted in some ATM machines, but it did work in others. This may have had to do with the fact that it was a Mastercard card. Maybe with a Maestro/Visa card it would have worked.
(Also, I don't know about the upper limit, but we found that from some ATM machines it was not possible to withdraw as little as we wanted. :) )
