    Banking questions.....

    Advertisements



    I was just wondering how do most students withdraw money to assist with living expenses in Antigua? Is it possible to use a debit card to withdraw money from an ATM using an existing account in the US. For example, I have US Banks... can my parents deposite the money in the States and I use my debit card to withdraw money in Antigua or should I open a new account with a bank in Antigua?

    What about depositing money into a bank? Is it possible to deposit money into my US Bank account in antigua or does it only work with local banks in antiuga? Thank you so much for all your help.

    You can open an account in antigua. You can put money into that account if you bring cash/travellers checks with you. Or you can have money wired directly into your bank.

    You can also use your US card I would think at the international banks. You just have to have the right card compatiablity. there is a Scotia bank in Woods mall which is cirrus and interac compatible (i think).

    Your last question doesn't make any sense to me. You have a US bank account in antigua?

    Many students have an account with Bank of America in the US.. you can withdraw money from that account in Antigua through Scotia Bank without any charges.

    Some other students open accounts with ABIB, and deposit money by bringing checks or getting money wired into it.

    How banking works in a foreign countries is in your common sense? You must be a very smart person.. I'm surprised you are coming to AUA.

    I recommend a different career

    No I dont think im a very smart person but then who really is considering we go to AUA... everybody has a reason to why they are there... But by the very logic of the statement one could figure out their own answer... PLUS its already been asked in numerous threads!
