Withdraw Money Oversea Using Malaysia ATM Card

Today i am doing research of “How to withdraw money oversea using Malaysia ATM Card” and i check on both Public Bank and Maybank since i have both bank ATM and Credit Card. This is what i found out, first you need to check the back of your credit card has either “PLUS” or “Cirrus” logo. If not you may skip below and contact your respective bank for a new card replacement or activate this feature. If you have either “PLUS” or “Cirrus” please read on.

Fees Incurred 

Since i have Maybank ATM + Visa Debit so i just checked and confirm that RM12 per withdraw oversea using PLUS platform. Which is not bad, imagine you withdraw USD1000 which is just 0.0037% (RM12/RM3200). This rate might be even better than what you get from local currency exchange service. Consider your own safety for carrying load of cash aboard, paying RM12 to withdraw money is pretty acceptable.

Using Your Card Oversea

First and foremost, give a call to your bank and check whether your ATM has activated oversea withdraw feature as i just call to Maybank and they told me my card is not activated but they can activated it for me through phone call. It is very important to inform your bank on your travel date as sudden change in your account activity especially oversea spending will trigger fraud alert which will cause your bank to freeze your account. Give them a call and tell them that you will be travel and ask for emergency contact for card lost or stolen. Keep this number.

You may withdraw cash from most of the ATM machine oversea by checking for “Plus” or “Cirrus” logo. According to Maybank agent, Maybank debit card may not be function during daily maintenance window of Malaysia time 12am – 1.45am so try to avoid time frame.

Increase your card limit, two type of limit for Debit Card which is Withdraw Limit and Expenses Limit.

      Hey Guys!!!I am Paul i live in Ohio USA, Am so happy I got mine from Annie. My blank ATM card can withdraw $3,000 daily. I got it from Her last week and now I have $9,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it because it is blank just your PIN will be on it , it is not traceable and now i have money for business,shopping and enough money for me and my family to live on .I am really glad and happy i met Annie because i met Five persons before her and they took my money not knowing that they were scams. But am happy now. Annie sent the card through DHL and i got it in two days. Get your own card from her right now she is not like other scammer pretending to have the Blank ATM card,She is giving it out for free to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught or traced . im happy and grateful to Annie because she changed my story all of a sudden .The card works in all countries that is the good news Annie’s email address is anniemellor233@yahoo.com,

  1. Oo! Never really look into this, as I always prepare more than enough money to overseas, next to consider would to use credit card. Nice info. Thanks for the sharing.

  2. I would like to ask, let say im using my ATM card in Hong Kong, i make a withdrawal of MYR2000 equivalent, so the charged amount will be a total of MYR 2012 or the RM12 is deducted from the amount i have withdrawed ( meaning i just draw an amount of worth total of 1988 )?

  3. Does Maybank charge extra percentage from our withdrawal? Most debit & Credit cards impose this hidden charge according to the withdrawn amount, sometimes 1 or 2%. But I really don’t know how much Maybank is charging.

  4. Im using cimb card with cirrus logo.. so i can withdraw money from any atm ..?im going to seoul.. first i need to inform my bank first..so they will change my money from ringgit to won?so if in my acc theres rm4012, i withdraw all this money.. i get 1 million won..right?depends on currency rate ..

    1. Hi, technically you no need to inform your bank but you may need to verify with them whether oversea withdraw is enable or not. Regarding on how much you get in won depends on currency rate
