What does your bank charge for ATM withdrawals using your Dollar VISA Card

I had to bring up this topic with regards to the charges I get to pay whenever I make an ATM withdrawal using my dollar denominated Visa Card in Nigeria.

I use Intercontinental Bank’s dollar denominated VISA Debit Card and whenever I use the automated teller machine (ATM), I get automatically debited to the tune of US$2 per transaction, plus additional 1% of the total withdrawal per transaction.

Intercontinental Bank allows a maximum withdrawal of N20,000 per transaction, therefore if you want to withdraw the naira equivalent of N60,000 (Sixty Thousand Naira) from your dollar Visa Card; that means you would have to make 3 (three) withdrawals of N20,000 each and you would be charged US$2 + 1%  of each  N20,000 Meaning, if withdrawing  the max of N20,000 per transaction, you would also be debited an equivalent of N516 (Five Hundred and Sixteen Naira) for each transaction as bank charges.

Lets know what your bank charges for withdrawing using your dollar denominated VISA Card on naira-based Automated Teller Machines (ATMs).
