Hi everybody,

a few years back it was possible to withdraw USD at ATMs in Colonia, Uruguay. Almost any bank had the option.
Does anyone know if that's still possible?

Any info is highly appreciated.

Cheers

Do you know the limit on how much you can withdraw at a time? Can you make more than one withdrawal in a day?

Last year the limit was $ 200 US per extraction maximum 2 extractions per day at a Bank. So one had to visit 6 banks to get US$2400..!!
There was a US$5 fee per extraction. If you extract dollars in the AM then after 4 when thy replenish the ATM's is a different period..! The Banco de Uruguay would sell up to US$1000 via teller with US Credit Card

Good luck

Was the 5 USD fee charged by the urugayan bank for using their ATM or was it from your bank?

The Bank in Colonia debits your account for US$205 . The fees on your bank side for an international cash withdrawal are a separate issue.
