Buying foreign exchange

You can buy your foreign exchange at your nearest foreign exchange outlets or order it through Direct Delivery service (conditions apply).

Exchange control allows you to buy your foreign exchange up to 60 days before your departure. You need to provide proof that you will be travelling overseas, for example, your ticket.

When collecting your foreign exchange, make sure that you take:

  • your ticket,
  • ID document
  • and passport with you.

If you are going to travel by road, you will need to provide the vehicle registration papers for the vehicle you will be using.

If you do not have a transaction account with us, you will also need to bring proof of your residential address such as a utility bill that shows your name and physical address that is not older than three months.
