RWF – Rwandan Franc


The payment processing of this currency is considered to be relatively standardised.

Due to the Covid situation in Rwanda, local authorities have restricted business hours for all banks from 17th July to 26 July. As a result, any outstanding/future RWF payments could face delays.

Currency Guidelines

A clear reason / purpose of payment is recommended and consists of a full written description (in English) of the nature of payment to be provided in the remittance information. For example: providing an invoice number without guiding text is considered as insufficient and can result in errors or delays.
