List of Forex Bureaus in Kenya Licensed by CBK

Forex bureaus in Kenya licensed by CBK

Forex Bureaus (Bureau de Change) in Kenya are licensed and regulated by the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) to offer foreign exchange services in Nairobi and other parts of the country. Forex Bureaus will buy foreign currency from you at a fee in exchange for the Kenya shillings. They can also sell you foreign currency in exchange for local money. The best forex bureaus in Kenya offer competitive and negotiable exchange rates to their customers.

Some businesses in Kenya, like hotels, real estate and international schools take advantage of the rising dollar by requiring clients to make payments of charges with dollars.

Forex Bureaus in Kenya take advantage of the volatility in the exchange rates to make profits. However, they are cheaper than banks because they sell forex at discounted rates.

CBK gives guidelines on operating Forex Bureaus in Kenya. Apart from being licensed by the government entity, the person wishing to operate a foreign exchange outlet in Kenya should have a capital of not less than $60,000 and also enough funds to cater for non-interest-bearing deposits of $30,000.
