The local currency is the Metical; these notes come in 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 denominations. In Maputo it is possible to use US$ and further south South African Rands are also commonly accepted. For up to date currency exchange rates look at www.xe.com. Credit cards such as VISA and MASTERCARD are widely accepted in shops and restaurants especially in major cities and ATM’s are also abundant. It is NOT advisable to bring travelers cheques as they are not widely accepted and difficult to cash.
