Vietnam Currency Guide


The currency used throughout Vietnam is the Vietnamese Dong.


ATMs in Vietnam can be found in the tourist areas of the major cities and towns. Some of these machines are operated by ANZ and Commonwealth and will have an English option available. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don't forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and to see what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.


Before you leave home, don't forget to convert some of your Australian Dollars into Vietnamese Dong to have with you when you arrive in Vietnam. Vietnamese Dong are available to purchase at Travel Money Oz before you go.

Credit Card

For large purchases, it’s a good idea to bring a credit card with you on your holiday to Vietnam instead of carrying a lot of cash. If you don’t have a credit card, consider a debit credit card that allows you to access your savings account and the local currency from ATMs and wherever Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards are accepted.
