The Gambian Dalasi is the official currency of The Gambia, a small West African state completely surrounded by Senegal (except the coastline). The Gambian Dalasi is only accepted in The Gambia, but they do also accept the Senegalese currency in border regions. Because of this you should avoid taking too much currency with you as it may be difficult to exchange Dalasi back into Sterling on your return.
You can also use West African and Central African Francs in Gambia, but these are also not widely traded outside of Africa unlike the Dalasi that can be bought from online bureau de change, the Post Office and some high street banks. Do not rely on using your credit or debit card as these are not commonly accepted. Cash is the most widely accepted form of payment. The latest advice says:
According to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) attacks on tourists are becoming more common and you should not take valuables or large sums of money to the beach or display them in public, and you should take particular care when visiting isolated beaches. We recommend you visit the FCO website and read their latest advice before you travel.
British nationals are given a 28-day stamp in their passports upon arrival in The Gambia and do not require a visa to enter the country. You can get additional extensions of 28 days from the Gambian Immigration Office but visits lasting longer than 3 months may have additional entry requirements so you should check with the Gambian Embassy before you travel.
We are accredited partners of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) Travel Aware campaign which provides official government advice for British travellers heading abroad.
The FCO release travel alerts containing important information for travellers to any countries where the safety or security of British citizens may be at risk.
