Advisory on forex rates for\r\ncertain dollar bills in Uganda

Travelers are encouraged to obtain dollar bills newer than 2003 for the\r\nbest exchange rate. Older or torn bills will fetch lower value at all Forex\r\nBureaus or may not be accepted outside Kampala. Small dollar bills in the\r\ndenominations of $20, $10, $5, $1 and coins also fetch low value on Ugandan\r\nmarket. It's therefore important that you carry newer bills in the\r\ndenominations of $50 and $100 for the best exchange rates in Uganda
