Portuguese in Angola

Banks and Money

A $100 bill

One can change money at the airport or the bank. Although money exchange bureaus were once very popular, they have been put out of business by the many vendors who change money on the streets at a lower rate than either the bureaus or the banks. It is not advisable for a tourist to change money this way, since some of the vendors can be quite dishonest, and a tourist would have no way of judging with whom to do business. One can also cash travelers checks at banks. At present, ATMs are not available in Angola.
