Money Matters in Bhutan Money Matters in Bhutan

Money Matters in Bhutan

Bhutan's unit of currency is the Ngultrum (Nu.). A ngultrum has equal value to the Indian rupee, which is also used in Bhutan. Visitors can exchange cash and travelers' cheques at the foreign exchange desk in Paro Airport and at Bank of Bhutan branches in major cities like Paro and Thimphu. Some hotels offer exchange services, but many are restricted to US Dollar exchanges. When traveling outside of the cities, you will scarcely find any banks or even ATMs. Even in major towns, the ATM services are limited.

Credit cards are accepted only in specialty stores in Thimphu and in high-end hotels. International MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards can be used to withdraw cash at many of the limited ATMs in the country. It is also possible to use Western Union to have money wired in, but access to these funds is limited and can only be done in certain locations, at certain amounts, and on certain days.
