ATM cash withdrawal limit
All Saudi banks including Al Rajhi, SNB (Al Ahli), Bank Al Bilad, etc have set the maximum cash withdrawal limit through ATM cards at SR 5,000/day.
When can we withdraw again?
It is important to note that the ATM cash withdrawal limit in Saudi Arabia is per 24 hours. For example;
- Time of Cash Withdrawal: 11:30 pm on 20 July.
- Time of next Cash Withdrawal: 11:31 pm on 21 July.
The interval between the two withdrawals must be of 24 hours and not less than that period.
What are the other options?
There are several other options through which you can withdraw more than the ATM cash withdrawal limit (SR 5,000) from your bank account in Saudi Arabia;
1- You can visit any branch of your bank and withdraw any amount of money from there.
2- Transfer some amount to one of your other bank accounts and withdraw through the ATM card.
3- Transfer some amount to your friend and ask him to withdraw cash for you through the ATM.
4- If the purpose why you need cash is shopping, you can use your ATM card at the point of sale for transactions up to SR 60,000/day.
5- If you are making a payment for something else, you can also ask the other party to receive funds in a bank account.

- Withdrawal charges for using other bank’s ATM: ZERO.
