Airport in Haiti serviced by Air Transat
Haiti’s official currency is the Haitian Gourde (HTG), but American dollars are also accepted, especially in centres of tourism. Canadian money cannot be exchanged at destination. The ATMs only provide local currency (Haitian gourde). Credit cards are also often accepted. However, it is best to notify your bank before your trip to avoid declined transactions.
All foreign nationals arriving in Haiti will be required to pay a US $10, CAD $10 or €10 tourist fee in cash only (subject to change). Must be made by passengers upon their arrival at the Port au Prince airport.
Haiti’s official languages are Haitian Creole and French. English is also understood in centres of tourism.
