Foreign Exchange Bureaus & Banks

There is a wide array of banks and Foreign exchange bureaus to choose from, with several international banks represented (Barclays, Standard Chartered, Stanbic).
The US dollar and the pound sterling are the strongest currencies used in Uganda and are the easiest to exchange however you can always exchange any currency you come with. US dollar notes dated prior to 1997 are turned away, we recommend if you are using US$ to bring notes issued from 2003 and above. Also, notes smaller than US$50 attract a far lower exchange rate. All Foreign exchange bureaus take cash “so please look around for the best exchange rate. We suggest you bring cash and/or credit cards with you as opposed to travelers’ cheques, as the exchange rate (on traveler’s cheques) is much lower.

You can change money on your way in at the airport, because it is convenient, however, be aware that the airport is currently not as competitive as Foreign exchange bureaus in Kampala. Try to have all your cash needs arranged before leaving Kampala if you can. Visit the bank of Uganda and see current rates on market.
