Companies in need of Foreign Exchange.

Exchange Control Service

FNB's exchange control regulation guidelines state that, all sales and purchases of foreign exchange are governed by the Exchange Control Regulations, Orders and Rules, 1961.

Through FNB's Exchange Control Department, you can:

  • Obtain foreign exchange from FNB - an authorised dealer
  • Receive exchange control regulation guidelines
  • Receive advice from Exchange Control Department
  • Request an agreement with the Reserve Bank whereby exemption is granted from producing documentation on each occasion

Exchange control requirements on import trade transactions

All sales and purchases of foreign exchange are governed by the Exchange Control Regulations, Orders and Rules, 1961. Certain transactions can be handled by Authorised Dealers in foreign exchange, without referring to the Exchange Control Department of the South African Reserve Bank.

Any transactions not covered by the Exchange Control rulings must be referred to the Reserve Bank for approval via an Authorised Dealer, such as First National Bank.

Our Exchange Control Department can be contacted should you have any doubts regarding a particular transaction, for advice and guidance.
