Foreign Currency Exchange

When traveling abroad you may need foreign currency to cover immediate incidental and unforeseen expenses such as taxi fare, tips and food. Also, there may be businesses that do not accept credit cards. Bank of Hope’s Foreign Currency Exchange Service will ensure your trip is worry-free. You can avoid the hassles of exchanging currency at expensive airport currency exchange booths by exchanging your currency at competitive rates at Bank of Hope branches nationwide. When you return from your trip, Bank of Hope will also purchase your unused foreign currency banknotes (subject to conversion at the then prevailing exchange rate determined by the Bank).

  • Competitive exchange rates (updated daily)
  • Over 70 currencies available for purchase or sale
  • No service fee for exchanges over $300 USD

Note: Foreign currency purchase orders placed before 2:30 pm local time will usually be ready for pick-up the next business day.
