If you are looking for current information about exchange rates for other currencies, use of master cards etc, or about banks on different islands, I would suggest you visit the bank websites and contact the banks directly as they update their own information on their websites.

Generally, most banks on the islands, will need applications and paperwork to be approved by the head office which will be in Praia, Santiago.
Some Developments and Estate Agencies have an agreed mortgage rate with the banks.
