The unit of currency is the Kwanza (AON). Visitors should bring enough cash for their needs. Money can be exchanged at bureaux de change. Newly issued US dollars are the most acceptable currency. Credit cards are only accepted in larger hotels, and cash withdrawals are not possible. Few ATMs in Luanda accept foreign cards, and travellers cheques are not welcome. Kwanza may not be taken out of Angola.
