In March we announced a temporary closing of all of our company-owned retail branches due to coronavirus. We're working really hard on welcoming you back to our retail branches and look forward to seeing you again soon. As we reopen, you will notice we have made some safety precautions to help protect our employees and customers. Additionally, we are currently still selling all our normal currencies and purchasing all major currencies. We are limited in some minor currencies, so we advise contacting a branch prior to coming in to confirm we purchase any minor currency.
As the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to issue new guidance on how to prevent the spread of coronavirus, we've carefully weighed the health and safety of our customers and employees with our desire to serve you in our branches.
Here's the current status of our branch hours for all of our company-owned retail locations. We will continue updating our branch locations status below as we get more information.

As a multinational company, we have strong relationships in place with all of our vendors and service providers as well as insights from health experts including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local health authorities. We have confirmed our procedures meet or exceed their guidelines.
We are also working with best practices and guidance from health leaders so we can provide you a necessary service in your travel journey.
Here are some signs you will see at our branch in support of our safety precautions:
We understand there is a lot of misinformation being spread about cash handling. We want you to be confident in your handling of foreign cash. CXI has no restrictions on its currency purchases or sales related to the virus. There is no link to foreign cash being a carrier of the virus more than US cash and neither are likely vectors to spread the virus. The best practice for all cash handling is for an individual to wash or clean their hands afterward. Relevant sources below support the general consensus that the risk of handling soft surface materials like cash is low.
'Despite reports that the World Health Organization was pushing people to use contactless payments, a spokesperson for the WHO tells CNBC Make It it has not issued any warnings or statements about the use of cash. Instead, it reiterated that you should wash your hands, including after handling money, especially if you're eating or touching food.' - CNBC
'Flu viruses, for example, can survive on hard surfaces for 24 hours, but they can only survive on surfaces like tissues for 15 minutes …It's not people exchanging money that's spreading coronavirus.' - Dr. Amesh A. Adlja, M.D., Senior Scholar at Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security
'...the coronavirus would therefore also live longer on debit and credit cards, and mobile phones, which are being encouraged as payment option by many of the world's central banks. 'Cash is just one of a number of frequently touched surfaces we encounter. The same is true for any other payment device whether it's a card, phone or watch,' says Reserve Bank of New Zealand assistant governor, Christian Hawkesby.
'The research appears to indicate banknotes will not transmit the virus any more than using a debit card or mobile phone. Due diligence in terms of personal hygiene therefore appears to be the key to preventing the spread of the virus when using any payment method.' - Central Banking
Our branches are currently able to purchase all major foreign currencies plus more than 55 minor currencies. We've made progress with our network of trading partners and logistics channels internationally to support more minor currencies. As a reminder, our branches are still able to sell our normal 90+ foreign currencies. These are the following updated list of all foreign currencies we can purchase:
