    Travelling to the Wallis and Futuna Islands

    The CFP franc (XPF) is the currency of four 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.

    There is no ATM in Futuna, so take whatever cash you will need. Try to learn some French before you go. On Wallis, the Banque de Wallis et Futuna has the only ATM in the territory and is located in Mata-Utu.
