Currency in Tajikistan
The only currency that may be used to pay for goods and services in the territory of Tajikistan is the local monetary unit somoni. Foreign currency (US dollars, euros, roubles, tenge, Uzbek sum and Kyrgyz som), may be exchanged at banks in large cities and at numerous currency exchange offices, which you can find in almost any settlement throughout the country.
We recommend that you buy the local currency, somoni, in parts, as you spend it. You should not exchange money in the streets or at market places.
Bank cards Visa and MasterCard may be accepted at some hotels and large shops only in Dushanbe and Khujand. Cash dispensers (automated teller machines) can also be found in these two cities.
