dollar billWe are pleased to advise that the Zambian Government has revoked Statutory Instruments 33 of 2012 and 55 of 2013. Effectively this means that foreign currency will once again be accepted for payment in Zambia and guests will no longer need to convert foreign currency into Zambian  Kwacha.

This was announced by the Zambian Minister of Finance on 21 March 2014 and is with immediate effect. Please note it may take a while for the various institutions to make the required changes to their systems, however it is excellent news for Zambia’s Tourism Industry.
