Problems with banks and Bank cards in the Crimea appeared in connection with the imposition of sanctions after the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation in 2014. At first, you couldn't pay by card or withdraw money from ATMs, and tourists were forced to travel only with cash.

Credit cards Mastercard, Visa and the WORLD, issued by Russian banks, are accepted in shops and hotels of the Crimea without restrictions. Fees are not charged, unless it is stipulated by the Bank that issued the card. Rarely any banks establish such a Commission, so you can easily use the card. Failures in processing of transactions happen, but not because of political sanctions, and because of technical failures. If your card will not be accepted, inform the Bank, and if you're lucky, they solve the problem until your vacation is over.

Also with the help of a plastic card you can buy plane tickets, bus, book hotels and accommodation in Crimea via Internet while still at home or already on vacation in the Crimea without any commissions.

If a plastic card issued by a foreign Bank

Yes, you can credit cards Mastercard, Visa and the WORLD issued by Russian banks, but there is one feature: your map should include cash withdrawals at ATMs of other banks. Some banks, in particular Sberbank, produce maps that will work only at ATMs of Sberbank, and no other. Accordingly, with such a card to withdraw money does not work, and all other – please.

When withdrawing cash from ATMs of other banks contemplated by the Commission. The amount of Commission depends on your Bank, you can find all the information for your card on the website or in the terms of the contract, but the average is about 1% and not less than 100 roubles.
