Banks are open from 9:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday. They are usually closed on weekends and public holidays. Some banks are opening in the main centres on Saturday.
Automated Teller Machines (ATM) are widely available at banks, along main shopping streets and in shopping malls.
International credit cards and ATM cards will work as long as they have a four-digit PIN encoded. Check with your bank before leaving home and let them know about your travel plans. Foreign currency can easily be exchanged at most banks, some hotels and bureau de change kiosks. You can find these at international airports and in most city centres. Traveller's cheques are accepted at hotels, banks and some stores.
