Money

CFP - the same as in Tahiti and New Caledonia.

If you have gone through French Polynesia and still possess a few French Pacific francs, not to worry as they work here too.

The only bank is on Wallis, a 20 minute walk from the harbour in the small "Fenuarama" shopping center. There is an ATM however it is often out of money by the weekend.

Credit cards are accepted in hotel and for car hire, but not by most shops.

2016/08 Wallis Radio only monitor 16 now, Michel Soula is no longer there. Navionic chart plotter was very accurate and the tide and current charts are spot on. The small boat customs is right on the docks now, you don't have to walk the 1 1/2 km to get to them, although the police do indicate that you have to walk up there YOU DO NOT, that is a customs office but is for importing goods. The anchoring information remains correct.
