Creditcards, CurrencIES, Exchange Rates.

1-Q

 

What currency do you use in Myanmar? What is the current exchange rate for that currency against the US Dollar?

Ans:

 

The local currency used is called Kyat (pronounced “chat”, abbreviated as Ks). The currency exchange rate is Ks 1225 against the US Dollar at the official exchange counter located in airport and downtown area.

2-Q

 

I understand that I have to exchange US$200 into FEC (Foreign Exchange Currency) upon arrival in Myanmar. Does this requirement still exist? I was also told that the FEC is worth about 25% less than the US Dollar when changed into Myanmar Kyat. Is this correct?

Ans:

 

No. The requirement to exchange the above specified amount upon arrival no longer exists. It is also not correct that the FEC is worth 25% less than the US Dollar. The FEC is officially equal to the US Dollar in value and so far has similar exchange rates (which sometimes slightly vary) to the local Kyat currency.

3-Q

 

During travel in Myanmar, can we be able to use our credit cards? If so, what types of credits are commonly accepted? If not, what types of currencies should we bring?

Ans:

 

Currently, credit cards are not generally accepted in Myanmar. We advise you to bring enough US Dollars for your travel, accommodation, shopping and dining expenses. Some travel agencies and hotels may accept but you have to check with them before you come. More news >>

4-Q

 

How much should I bring for within country travel?

Ans:

 

The amount of US Dollars you should bring will depend on your length of stay and which part of country you will be traveling. We advise that you consult with you travel agent with regards to this.
