Welcome to Lubumbashi International Airport

The airport is located six miles (10km) outside of Lubumbashi.


Departure Tax
US$50
Language
French is the official language, but Lingala, Kingwana, Kikongo and Tshiluba are also spoken.
Money

The official currency is the Congolese Franc (CDF). Credit cards have a very limited use, as do traveller cheques, usually only in Kinshasa. It is best to take US dollars in hard currency. Banks are closed on weekends and credit cards cannot be used to obtain cash advances. The economy is highly unstable in the Congo, and therefore denominations of currency and exchange rates are subject to change at short notice.

Time
GMT +1 in the west (Kinshasa) and GMT +2 in the east.
