Currency

  • The Namibian currency is the Namibian Dollar (N$).
  • The Namibian dollar is pegged to the South African Rand. The Rand is universally accepted in Namibia.
  • We advise you to try to leave Namibia with South African currency only as Namibian Dollars attract a lower exchange rate to the Rand outside Namibia.

  • Banks and ATMs are widespread and dispense Namibian Dollars.
  • There is a bank at the airport.
  • Travellers cheques can be exchanged at most banks. A commission will be charged and it is necessary to present your passport when exchanging cheques.
