The currency used in Wyoming is the US dollar (US$). Banknotes come in denominations of US$1, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100. There are 100 cents in US$1, with coins available in denominations of 1, 5, 10, and 25 cents. Credit cards are accepted by large businesses here but cash may be needed in rural area shops. To exchange foreign currency, a major bank branch in a large city is the best bet. ATMs that can handle international cash cards are typically found at banks.


Wyoming is in the Mountain Time Zone (GMT -7, GMT -6 between March 12 and November 4 during daylight savings).


Wyoming uses electricity at 110-120V/60Hz. Flat, two-prong plugs are typical, so it is recommended that you travel with a universal plug adapter or voltage converter if you are coming from Europe or Asia.


The dialing code for the United States is +1. Wyoming uses a single area code (307) for the entire state. Cell phone coverage is confined to areas around towns due to the vast sections of empty space in Wyoming. Internet access is also sketchy, but Wi-Fi hot spots are available in towns like Jackson Hole and Cody.


Every visitor over the age of 18 who arrives in America can carry: one liter of alcohol, 200 cigarettes (or 50 non-Cuban cigars or two kilograms of tobacco), and gifts valued at US$400 without paying any duty tax.
