Congo Currency

Money

The Central African CFA franc (FCFA) is the official currency of the Republic of the Congo (along with five other central African countries). It is divided into 100 smaller units called centime. The Congo is primarily a cash economy. A few hotels in Brazzaville and Pointe Noire now accept major credit cards but cash is usually the only method of payment in the country. There are a handful of ATMs in Brazzaville that accept foreign cards, and a few in Pointe Noire. It is possible to exchange foreign currency at a number of banks.
