I am travelling to Uganda for a few weeks and wish to take with me a few thousand pounds in sterling cash because the exchange rate is better in Uganda. What are the rules about this?
copied from a web site -
Currency Import regulations:
Foreign currencies: There is no limit on the amount of foreign currency a traveler can bring into Uganda, provided he/she declares the currency upon arrival.
Domestic currencies: The GOU prohibits travelers from importing Ugandan shillings upon arrival.
Currency Export regulations:
Foreign currencies: Travelers are free to export foreign currency up to the amount imported and declared on arrival.
Domestic currencies: The GOU prohibits travelers from exporting Ugandan shillings upon departure.
Thank you for your very helpful reply.
