Varning - USD Notes

A note on US Banknotes!  
Whilst we are updating you on practical matters about Malawi, we also would like to inform you about feedback we have received from accommodation providers in Malawi about US banknotes. With Malawi banks not accepting $1 notes, many providers have had to refuse to take this from tourists as a form of currency, and the feedback we¹ve had really stresses that tourist should be informed that although some change is good, really 20, 50 and 100 dollar bills are more practical. With providers struggling to make use of $1 dollar notes some tourists could be faced with a straight no when coming to pay for their accommodation and tours, so information on this is best given at the time of booking.
