Money and Banking in Douala, Cameroon.

No need to go around with large sums of money on you, its neither  safe nor smart. Douala is very well connected to the rest of the world by way of its plentiful Visa, Master and American Express electronic banking services offered by the world class banking system in Douala.

Interestingly, I never incurred an ATM fee (Automated Teller Machine Fee) throughout my stay in Cameroon, even though I was using a US banking debit card at unrelated banks  ( banks with no affiliation whatsoever with my US bank). Although Caneroon banks will not charge you for any debit card withdrawal, your foreign bank, especially US banks may charge a foreign transaction fee, usually 2 to 3 percent. To avoid these charge, use Capital One 360 Debit Card.

A debit or credit card is the best way to carry cash - it is secure, safe and easy. See our list of Douala banks for how and where to use your debit card to withdraw money.

  • Visa is the most popular card - be sure to carry one.
  • Douala hotels offer money exchange services to their clients.
  • Travelers check are also accepted at banks and hotels.
