Currency and Exchange

The official currency of Sao Tome and Principe is the Dobra (STD). In most of the touristic places the Dollar and the Euro are also accepted as trading currencies.
Acquired Dobras (STD) should be spent entirely in the country, because their exchange to another currency is difficult.

The head office of our agency in São Tomé provides a currency exchange service for local currency, offering you the most competitive rates on the island.

Please be advised that withdrawing money in Sao Tome and Principe is only possible at the counter of a bank, with credit card.

For your convenience use our currency converter.
