Tips - useful info

Carry more dollars in cash than we did since credit cards are either not accepted or charge in dollars at the unfavourable (half of unofficial rate) som rate – meaning you end up paying 100% more than you otherwise would in dollars cash or som. Withdrawals of US dollars can be made against debit or credit cards but they carry fees (visa -2.5% fee and master cards 3% fee) at just one bank location in each city. Make sure you declare any currency you are carrying on the 2 customs forms you are required to fill in on entry – they don’t care how much you carry on your way in but really care about what you carry out on departing the country – it can’t be more than what you declared on your way in

In Chorsu depends from the changer you find.

It will be better to have 50 and (much better) 100 $ notes to change them in local currency and small notes to pay directly in USD for accomodation or lifts.

In the bazaars, they will change both; the rates are marginally better for USD
