Fiji Dollar cash
The official currency of Fiji is the Fiji Dollar. Cash is a travel essential and can save you time and money on many occasions. Having local currency on hand can:
- be handy for small purchases such as something to eat or drink
- give you an alternative method of payment in the event you are unable to pay with a card or you are charged an additional fee to pay with a card
- save you from having to pay high commission fees to exchange money in popular tourist areas when you arrive in Fiji

Using your credit or debit card
Remember to check in with your bank to make sure you are fully aware of the fees you will be charged to make purchases or to withdraw money from an ATM in Fiji. Click here to see common credit/debit card fees and charges before you speak with your bank. If you are planning to take your debit card with you, It is also important to make sure that your card will work overseas. Look on the front and back of your card and make sure that there is a Visa, Mastercard or American Express symbol on the card. If there are none of these symbols, there may be a Maestro or Cirrus logo – these cards will only work at ATM’s that display the Cirrus or Maestro logo. Please feel welcome to contact us if you are unsure if your credit or debit card will work. Always prepare for the event that your card is lost, stolen or skimmed, by having a back-up source of funds available. Access to emergency assistance is a must, you can get emergency cash in as little as 20 minutes if you have a Mastercard Multi-currency Cash Passport Card that is designed for travel.
