Visiting South Africa

Welcome to South Africa

Whether you are visiting South Africa for business or pleasure, we provide you with a range of products and services to suit your foreign exchange needs.

South Africa's currency is the rand (ZAR or R), which is made up of 100 cents (c).


You have access to more than 200 Standard Bank outlets around the country where you can exchange your traveller cheques and foreign banknotes for South African rand. We accept foreign banknotes in all the major currencies, such as the US dollar, Euro, British pound, Australian dollar and many others.

When travelling you may be concerned about your money being lost or stolen and therefore being stranded in a foreign country. Instead of carrying cash, why not load it onto a MoneyWallet card, which is a prepaid MasterCard that you can use to make payments and withdraw cash at any ATM in South Africa.
