Foreign Exchange and Banking Facilities
The Indonesian currency is the Rupiah (Rp). Indonesia uses a floating exchange rate system and the Rupiah is currently exchanged at the rate of approximately Rp. 9,850 to US $ 1.
Currency notes or traveller's cheques may be exchanged at any authorized local bank or money changer. Banking hours are from 08.00 to 15.00 hours, Monday through Friday. Money changers are generally open every day until late evening, including on weekends. Cash advances on widely accepted credit cards (e.g., Visa, Master Card, AMEX and JCB) can also be made through automatic teller machines (ATMs) which display the respective card symbols.
While there is no restriction on the amount of foreign currency that may be brought into Indonesia, those who bring into the country currency worth more than Rp. 100 million must declare to customs the amount upon arrival at the first port of entry.
