Guinea-Bissau Currency

Money

The West African CFA franc is the currency of Guinea-Bissau (and seven other West African countries). Guinea-Bissau is one of the poorest countries in the world and banking facilities are limited. There are no ATMs in the country and credit cards are very seldom if ever accepted. The easiest foreign currency to exchange is euros, although US dollars are also usually exchangeable. It can be difficult to convert foreign currency of any kind outside of the capital, Bissau.
