    Currency in New Caledonia – CFP franc XPF

    A practical foreign exchange and currency guide on sending money and travel to New Caledonia

     

     

    Travelling to New Caledonia

    The CFP franc (XPF) is the currency of the French overseas collectives (collectivités d’outre-mer, or COM) that include French Polynesia, New Caledonia and Wallis and Futuna.

    The CFP franc is also referred to as the franc pacifique since it is used in the Pacific Ocean region. The initials CFP originally stood for Colonies Françaises du Pacifique (“French colonies of the Pacific”).

    As with the old French franc the CFP franc is broken into subunits called centimes. The CFP Franc is currently fixed to the Euro at a rate of approximately 1 Euro = 119 XPF.

    New Caledonia is a lovely, exotic but expensive destination. One of the reasons prices are so high is that the French public servants posted to New Caledonia are paid significantly more than if they were back in France. When a public worker works here he gets his salary multiplied by 1.73.

    The country has been urged to trade more with its local neighbours in the Pacific such as Australia and New Zealand rather than primarily with the mother country France to lower transport and freight costs
