  • Botswana – Country of Cattle
    As a inland state in the south of Africa, Botswana witnesses arid terraced terrain nationwide, and borders on South Africa to the south, Namibia to the west, Zimbabwe to the northeast, and Zambia to the north only at the place near Victoria Falls. In Botswana, wild animals run on the boundless grasslands freely. Why not take your UnionPay cards (card number starting with 62) to closely get in touch with nature, explore the mysterious African continent, and enjoy the pure heart of human beings as a part of nature. 
  • POS acceptance
  • Cash withdrawal
    In Botswana, local ATMs of Standard Chartered Bank accept UnionPay cards for cash withdrawal and balance inquiry.

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

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

  • Tips
    Select PINs that cannot be easily guessed by anyone.
    Never disclose your PIN to anyone who claims to represent the bank or the police.
    Be alert to your surroundings before conducting any banking transactions.
    Keep a close eye on your credit card during transaction to avoid any illegal activities.
    If your UnionPay card has been stolen/lost, please inform the issuer immediately.
