Exchanging Nepalese Rupee for AUD

My daughter returned from Nepal and still has some Nepalese Rupee, have tried banks and money exchange at Perth airport but am unable to exchange for AUD as they only buy what they sell. Does anyone have any ideas where we can get the money exchanged for Aussie dollars in Perth.

You can not exchange into NRP outside Nepal and tourists are not supposed to bring NRP out of Nepal...actually I think it isn't legal.

The best chance to get them exchanged is to find some one going to Nepal, who will exchange for her.

I hope it is not too big an amount!

I would also say the same thing that find someone who is coming to Nepal! You can sell them Nepalese Rupees in cheaper price so that definitely they will exchange. Post in the forums like Trek Info, Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor with the message that you have some Nepali Rupee and you want to sell them in better rates, I have seen such messages in Lonely Planet couple of times, home you will find someone!

There is a sizable Nepalese community in Aus believe me or not - look it up on the web for Nepalese community in Aus - they may have a Perth chapter or contact - then it is just a matter of finding some Nepali who will be travelling Nepal - offer him or her a decent exchange rate -

Start here


Good luck
