Guinea Currency


The official unit of currency in Guinea is the Guinean franc (GNF). It's illegal to exchange foreign currency on the street or to use unofficial moneychangers; those using moneychangers, even for small amounts or at the airport, have been arrested and detained in military custody. ATMs are very rare in Guinea and credit cards are not commonly accepted.
