  • Gambia – Country of Rivers
    The Republic of Gambia is located in the west of Africa, borders on the Atlantic to the west, and has its coastline stretching 48 kilometers. Banjul, as the capital of Gambia and once known as “Bathurst”, is the smallest capital in Africa, and located at the east coast of Saint Mary Island in the estuary of Gambia River. Gambia, featuring moderate temperature, beautiful scenery and many kinds of birds, is a popular tourist destination. Why not take your UnionPay cards (card number starting with 62) to visit Gambia.
  • POS acceptance
  • Cash withdrawal
    In Gambia, all ATMs of Standard Chartered Bank and EcoBank accept UnionPay cards for cash withdrawal and balance inquiry. UnionPay chip cards are also accepted at these ATMs.

    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 Gambia: some ATMs will charge commission fee, which is charged by the local banks in Gambia 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.
