FYI - Rumor has it that for the last two weeks, people have only been able to withdraw a maximum of USD$200 a pop at BROU ATMs, meaning they have to spend a lot more in transaction fees than before.

Be very careful with Schwab. Repeated large US dollar withdrawals in Uruguay will run a very high risk of getting your account closed by their compliance department.

They seem to have some kind of automated rationing system at some BROU ATMs. The ones in Colonia seem to have an arbitrary limit at times that goes up and down.

Elsewhere in UY I haven't encountered problems withdrawing $1000 per transaction, with the usual idiosyncrasy of the ATM going out of service for a minute between each use.

About 5 weeks, was able to withdraw 2.400 USD in three separate 300 USD operations in Colonia (was the limit then).
I'll have more USDs withdrawn in Uruguay in about 5 days, will update.

I second French jurists' statement.
I was in colonia 2.5 weeks ago and I could USD 300 at a time. However my bank blocked my card and that was all I got.
My Uruguayan friend can withdraw USD 500 with his credit card. Either way I will be in a couple of cities in Uruguay this weekend and can update.
Also, depending on how much money you need, it might be easier just going to the cashier in the bank and getting everything at once!

Hi guys. If you need USD here in Argentina, send me a PM with your e-mail address and I can refer you to someone who can give you as much USD as you need right here in Buenos Aires. No need to travel to Uruguay.

There are no fees for this service. It is free.
What kind of rate are we talking about?
