  1. These fellows need the Dollar to eat ?

    Bank will give local currency of Maldivian Ruffiya, it can use to buy goods/services in the Maldives.

    Most of the countries Dollar will not issue, bank will give only local curreny if your taking dollar account. u look Inida.

    These fellows are mad ?
