Visitors to Mozambique should be aware that it is difficult to obtain large amounts of cash in Maputo with a credit, debit or cash card. There are various ATM’s from various banks that allow for removal of local currency only. Cashing a traveler’s cheque is expensive and facilities are not available everywhere in the Country.
It is not possible to obtain fuel from filling stations with any card at all. It should also be noted that foreign currency is not freely available, as it is imported as required and as per law all negotiations/payments should be done in the local currency.
