  • POS acceptance


  • Cash withdrawal

    In Afghanistan, UnionPay cards are accepted at ATMs with signage on the machine or the screen for withdrawing local currency and US dollars. Some ATMs accept UnionPay chip cards, and most ATMs provide the interface in Chinese.

    Please refer to the latest government policy on overseas cash withdrawal via UnionPay cards at "Help Center-Card-using Instructions-Refined Card-using Tips". Daily cash withdrawal limit from respective issuers and/or ATM may apply. Please consult your issuer on the possible cap on the amount. You may split your withdrawals into several times which comply with the limit(s).

  • Charges

    ATM commission fee consists of two separate fees: 
    (1) Service fee charged by the issuer: please consult your issuer for details.
    (2) Service fee charged by the ATM acquirer in Afghanistan: some ATMs will charge commission fee, which is charged by the local banks in Afghanistan and which has nothing to do with UnionPay or the issuer.

    Cash withdrawal via debit card results in a lower commission fee.
