Ethiopia - Ethiopian birr (ETB)
The official currency of Ethiopia is called birr. Unfortunately the currency can´t be exchanged outside of Ethiopia, due to import and export regulations. The alternative is to exchange US dollars (USD) and use them as mean of payment or to exchange them to birr at a local bank when arriving in Ethiopia. In the capital Addis Abeba you will be able to do cash withdrawals using VISA cards. The ATM´s are usually located in larger shopping malls or in larger hotels.
