Travellers in Zimbabwe have been advised to bring along US Dollars, as an ongoing cash shortage in the country has disabled all ATM cash withdrawals for international banks. 

This is according to the latest update from the Foreign travel advice forum in Zimbabwe. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the United Kingdom also says that “Zimbabwe is still experiencing a shortage of cash and it is therefore not possible to make cash withdrawals using an international bank card.”


Travellers crossing the border into Zimbabwe are advised to withdraw and exchange money before they enter the country in order to avoid being cash-strapped in Zimbabwe.

The past year has seen many cash shortages in Zim. Last year, ahead of the winter travel period in June too, an alert was issued for tourists to bring their own dollars when visiting Zimbabwe.-Traveller24
