Currency/ Changing Money-

The currency is the cedi, which is divided into 100 Pesewas, it is pegged to other foreign currencies determined by the bank of Ghana and exchanged mostly at the Forex Bureaus. It is a serious offence to deface or knowingly damage the cedi. Visitors are strongly advised to transact all currency dealings through the banks, be mindful of changing money from an unapproved sources, and avoid street dealers. There are several private Forex bureaus dotted all over Accra and the major cities and perfectly safe to deal with them. They give higher rates than the banks.

NB. Always check for rates. All banks accept Traveler’s Cheque although the rate of exchange may be slightly lower than for cash transactions.
