Using ATMs

There are a number of banks in Ntungamo, however for the tourist requiring a Visa ATM outlet, head towards the Stanbic Bank near the centre of town where there is an Visa ATM. Although Visa is used in Uganda, the shops and other retail outlets in Ntungamo are, in general, cash only not least because few have credit/debit card facilities and for much of the day, electricity isn't available coming back on later in the afternoons and/or early evenings. Please also note that whilst the Stanbic Bank has this Visa ATM it is the only one for miles around so cash stocks can be low and at certain periods, around holidays, weekends and when local government workers have been paid there can be long queues ~ sometimes upwards of two hours to use the ATM.

As such, its always best to plan your cash needs in advance ~ and remember unlike banks such as Barclays in Mbarara and Kabale there are daily 24hr restrictions on cash withdrawals for the bank in Ntungamo, normally around £70 a day; although, obviously that is per card/account so someone with two different cards can withdraw £140 a day. Visitors should be aware that conversions charges may apply so should perhaps consider a pre-payment Visa cards such as Caxton where you load it up and when withdrawing cash in local currency, there is no transaction or conversion fee.

Please note, Mastercard is no longer widely used in Uganda and rarely accepted in any outlets even in the major towns and cities and certainly not in Ntungamo.
