Uganda and the US Dollar date

Contact Us


If you are visiting Uganda please bring US dollars dated 2009 and later.

Most banks and exchange bureaus here do not accept dollars dated before 2009, so in order not to be stuck with dollars that you can’t use please make sure that all US dollars you bring are 2009 and later.

There is conflicting advice on the internet , some people say 2001 and later is fine, this is outdated and the best advice is to use 2009 and later.

Please note – across the country you will get a poorer exchange rate for notes below denominations of $50 USD.
