333 islands to explore with white sand beaches, soft coral diving, swaying palms, blue lagoons... sounds a bit like paradise right? If Fiji is the paradise you've chosen for your next holiday, you'll need some Fiji dollars to spend on cocktails, snorkelling gear, day cruises and more.
The Fiji dollar - the official currency of Fiji since 1969 - is divided into 100 cents, and has both coins and notes in circulation. Prior to 2013, the notes and coins featured images of Queen Elizabeth II, but after this the colourful banknotes showed images of flora and fauna, and the first polymer banknotes were introduced.
When you visit Fiji, there is no limit to the amount of currency that you can bring into the Islands, and you can take out currency up to the amount you brought in. Tipping is not expected in Fiji, but a smile and a simple "vinaka" (thank you) will be appreciated.
