Q: Do I need a visa for Suriname?
A: It depends on your nationality. Also, special conditions may apply to foreign nationals of Suriname origin. Click here to check the Travel page for general information. Please refer to the relevant official websites for more detailed information.
Q: Do I need any vaccinations for Suriname?
A: Vaccines against yellow fever, diphtheria, tetanus, polio, and hepatitis-b are recommended.
Q: What about the local currency?
A: Our currency is the Suriname dollar (SRD). If you can get it at your bank, I would recommend you travel with some SRDs on you. Eventhough US dollars and Euros are accepted in Suriname, you will not get the best of rates if the price of the product you wish to purchase is in SRD. Accommodation and tours are often priced in USD or Euro.
Once you are here, head to a Cambio office to get your local money. A Cambio will offer better rates than a bank. Be aware that you may get offers to exchange money in the streets – do not respond to that: no eye contact, no reply, just ignore.
