Hi! I’m gonna fly from Delhi to Ho Chi Minh. I need to carry USD for my Vietnam visa on arrival. Anybody know if I can buy USD in Delhi airport or in Kuala Lumpur airport where I have my transit? Greatly appreciate if somebody knows this.

Yes, you can definitely buy USD at KL. It will be expensive; unless you're buying with Malaysian Ringgit you'll be hit with two exchange rates - the first to buy ringgit using your currency and then the second to sell your ringgit for USD.

Where are you starting from? India or somewhere else? If you are stopping in other countries along the way you can try there too. Don't know if you are beginning in India and enter at arrivals or you are in transit in the secure side.

Below is one link I come across with a Google search:

Is your route Delhi to Kuala Lumpur airport then to Vietnam?

Good luck anyway.

Thanks for the confirmation! Then at least I know I can get it even if its a high price and thats a relief. Im currently in India, so maybe here it will be the same price still.

When in Delhi check with some of the money changers in the city area too. You may get a better exchange rate. Google search shows several links.

Up to you.
