I am bringing some Jamaican dollars and been told that they get a bit funny about you taking leftover J$ out of the country at the airport. Is this true?
It all depends on how many leftover Jamaican dollars you take out of the country.
I've always taken JA$ back home with me. I guess it depends on how much you're talking about. They're not keen on large amounts leaving the country. I came back yesterday with around the equivalent of £1000 (about $1400 US) and had no problems at all.
It is only about £100 worth. I heard it was like one of those nations where they don't let you take their own currency out.
"It is only about £100 worth."
Should not be a problem.
pack it. don;t show it. no problem either way
As long as you are within the allowances based on Customs, you shouldn't have any problem.
Something to consider, you are essentially taking that money out of local circulation. Over time, I guess that could be an issue for the Financial Ministry.
I have always taken money home with me - Usually because I had it left over, and knew I would spend it on the next reach - However, my nephews also got a kick out of being able to flash around a JA$100 bill, lol - It's never been raised as an issue.
Not an issue and you can also exchange the remaining at the airport before you head out.
Would never use the airport for any cash exchanges. Rates are awful.
We always visit at least 3 times a year so money always goes back eventually.
Never had a problem, not once. I always come home with Jamaican $$.
