Exchange rate

      Foreign currencies are not accepted in most shops, so it is best for you to change your foreign currency to the local currency, which is Vietnam Dong.

    The current foreign exchange rate is approximately US$ 1.00 = VND 22,755. These rates are subject to market fluctuations so please check them again prior to your departure date. If you come to Vietnam with some foreign cash, you can exchange it for VND upon arrival at the international airport, banks or currency exchange establishments. You may get a slightly better rate of return at banks but you will always lose a little bit in the exchange agencies. The disadvantage of going to a bank to exchange money is that you need to show a passport for identification and you need to fill out a form first.
     Credit cards are accepted by hotels and some shops, however cash is also necessary. There are now a number of ATMs accepting international cards. Please note that most ATMs charge a fee of approximately US$4 for use of international cards.

     If you need really large sums of cash, Western Union is the best way to go. It is less expensive and more hassle-free than bank wire transfers, and there are several of locations within Thai Nguyen City, mostly inside banks. Depending on the amount, you may pay less in a Western Union transaction fee than on international cash advance fees through your bank or credit card. Simply get a friend or family member to go to a Western Union branch back home and fill out the appropriate paperwork. Be sure that the spelling of the name of the recipient matches exactly as it is shown on the passport – even one letter off is ground for refusal.
