Bolivares to US dollars
  • I just got back from Venezuela. I live in the US. I came back with quite a few bolivares that I"d like to exchange back to dollars but I'm having a hard time finding a place that would do this exchange. Does anyone have a suggestion of a place that is willing to exchnage this money to dollars?

  • Call the Bolivian embassy in DC (202) 483-4410. Otherwise find a city with a Bolivian expat community and make the change there. Seriously though, is it worth it? How much did you bring back. If its less than $50 just keep it as a souvenir or use it next time you're in the area.
  • thanks for the comment. I meant more like Bolivares (currency used in Venezuela). I brought back more than $400 but I will eitherway follow up the same steps as you mentioned above. thanks. Although not sure anymore if there's an embassy here since the politics between the 2 countries arent in their best interests these days
  • I'm a CPA in Los Angeles, and travel to Venezuela, and will buy your Bolivares. My email address is
  • What kind of currency is best to use in Venezuela Margarita Island... do they accept US dollars locally?
  • I live in Venezuela and its illegal to change Bolivares to Dollars (or any other currency) because of the currency controls here in the country imposed by Hugo Chavez. If you changed your money to Bsf here in Venezuela the only way to get rid of them is to sell them on the black market at a very different rate than what you bought them for. Otherwise, consider it a learning experience. Dollars, Euros and all hard currencies are like gold dust in this country.....hard to find and expensive when you do find them.
  • Hi my names many I have almost 62,000 bolivares and not sure where I could exchanged them to us dollars any suggestions here's my email
  • Manni, how many Bolivare fuertes do you have? Do you have Bolivares that they used in the past, where the numbers were in the thousands? (for example 2000 bs) or do you have the new currency, which they use BsF.(so 2000 bs would be 2 bsf? )
  • I know that this has nothing to do with exchange of money but just I am very curious why guests from Venezuela when they are traveling our of they country, having some problems with their credit cards.. example i am working on cruise ship and our system onboard is not able to charge their credit card before end of the year... guests are asking to be charged before end of the year as they may have some problems ... can anybody give me answer what is their system and why this needs to be charged before end of your 2010. Thank you :)

  • Guest from Cruise ship, we have a control currency in Venezuela. The goberment give to us $3000 per year for use only by credict card pre authorized and that money expire in one year, the last day for use it is December 31 of each year, for that your guest ask for charge the credic card before end of the year.
