Here and there I've seen some ATMs in Georgia (the country) which give a choice of currency rather than just offering Georgian lari (GEL) like the majority of ATMs.

In fact I can no longer remember whether the ones I saw offered also Euro (EUR) or American dollars (USD), only that I've been offered a choice sometimes and always just wanted the local currency.

But now I'm about to make my final withdrawal in the country and as the Turkish visa-on-arrival must be paid in either EUR or USD I'd like to get some in advance since I'm heading that way soon.

So what I need is a website that tells me where the ATMs that give out either foreign currency are located. I know about ATM locators for Visa or Cirrus, etc. But is there also a resource for ATMs in Georgia with the further details I need?

Out of pure coincidence, the first ATM I tried here in Borjomi offered me all three currencies! I don't think I'd seen that before. I got the impression it was out of the two foreign ones or I was asking for more than the limit... but it also turned out by complete coincidence that my ATM card has gone missing and I didn't notice until today \-: – hippietrail Jun 24 '12 at 15:37
Don't have a website for you, but I know for a fact that the few (all?) ATMs on Tbilisi's Leselidze street offer you the choice of Lari, USD and Euro. I was there just a few weeks ago. – MastaBaba Jun 24 '12 at 18:51
Most if not all Bank of Georgia ATMs (yellow ones) offer USD (not sure about euro) – Giorgi Jun 25 '12 at 14:00
Given @Giorgi's comment, could be an answer. – dlanod Jul 6 '12 at 5:53
@hippietrail: I just asked Banked of Georgia about it (you can also ask online at in english) and she said that every ATM can dispense USD but none of them can dispense EURO – Giorgi Jul 12 '12 at 13:18

According to some forums on the Caucuses on Thorn Tree:

in Tbilisi I know for a fact that TBC Bank and VTB have ATMs dispensing dollars because I use them all the time.

So going with that, we have VTB's English website, which conveniently has an ATM locator!

So based on that, it should give a pretty good basis for finding them.
