I need to withdraw money from my Korean bank account from ATMs in Las Vegas (foreign national living in Korea, going to the US for a personal visit),
I am trying online searches but most results are about withdrawing money from Korean ATMs using a US bank card, and it's hard to get information from Korean bank websites.
I have an account with a local bank, and they said they can make a card for me that can be used to withdraw money from specific ATMs in the US, but the staff weren't really clear on whether it will work in the US or not (that's what they told me, if there are specific ATMs that work with Visa cards, I might be able to withdraw money in US using my Korean card).
So I have two questions:
Would it be better to make an account with Citibank (since that's where you have to deposit the US visa application related fees, I'm assuming they can allow me to make withdrawals in the US using my Korean card) or another international bank? I'm not sure how easy or difficult it is, or if they charge more than the current bank I have an account with, making it not worth it.
I transfer money to my home country using a special account set up in my current bank, and I have heard before that they only allow international transactions to only one other country at a time from Korea. Is this true, and is it something I need to watch out for if I go ahead and make a card that possibly works in US? I still need to be able to send money normally to my home country using this bank.
