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).
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 Sierra Leone: some ATMs will charge commission fee, which is charged by the local banks in Sierra Leone and which has nothing to do with UnionPay or the issuer.
Cash withdrawal via debit card results in a lower commission fee.
