Botswana bans the use of any foreign currency!

The Botswana Unified Revenue Service (BURS) has announced that it will no longer accept any foreign currency as payment from 01 August 2019. The decision to ban the use of foreign currencies is made to curb high administrative costs incurred by BURS as the cost of converting foreign currency to Botswana Pula is increasingly becoming financially unsustainable. For continued smooth service, BURS provides Point of Sale (PoS) facilities at Botswana's ports of entries as well as at all BURS offices. Furthermore, there are operational bureau exchange services providers at all of the country's major ports of entry to facilitate foreign exchange services.
