BURUNDI

(franc = 100 centimes)

60-BIF

Text Box: 	Burundi is the poorest country in the world, in terms of GDP per capita: US$106 as of 2005.
	Tribal warfare has ravaged the country for decades, leaving the fertile land mostly underdeveloped.
	The in / out restrictions and the not numerous tourists (less than 30 000 per year) make the Burundi franc rare currency with no supply and demand out of the country. Small amounts may go to collectors. A large amount would be worthless.
Text Box: Import / Export restrictions:
	Foreign currency:
  In: free
 Out: up to imported and declared
	Local currency:
  In: free up to 5 000 BIF
 Out: free up to 5 000 BIF
