a close second. Other hard currencies such as Yen, French Francs, Deutsche Mark can also be changed in tourist areas and big
cities. There are no restrictions on the amount of foreign currency or traveler's cheques a tourist may import, provided a
Declaration Form is completed on arrival by the tourists if they enter the country with US$10,000 or its equivalent in any
other currency. This will facilitate the exchange of imported currency as well as the export of unspent currency on departure
or for tax clearance certificates. Cash, bank notes and travelers' cheques up to US$2.500 or equivalent need not be declared
at the time of entry. Any money in the form of travelers' cheques, drafts, bills, cheques, etc. which tourists wish to convert
