We have been receiving lots of inquiries about where to change 100 baisa to Philippine peso so I researched about it.
100 baisa is the smallest banknote of Oman in value.
The money of Oman is called OMANI RIAL and its units are called baisa.
Merong 100 baisa na papel, meron ding 100 baisa na coin. The other coins are 5 baisa, 10 baisa, 25 baisa and 50 baisa.
1 Omani Rial = 1,000 baisa
This means 100 baisa is only one-tenth of 1 Omani Rial.
Kumbaga sa atin, parang ang 100 baisa ay barya lang.
Sad to say, I found out that NO Money Changer in the Philippines is changing 100 baisa.
Siempre, napakaliit nga naman ng value. It is not profitable for a money changer to change 100 baisa.
Yong Omani rial na nga lang, hindi pinapalitan ng maraming money changers, yong baisa pa kaya. Maybe the volume of Omani rials being exchanged in the Philippines is so small that changing Omani rial is not profitable for money changers here. Czarina, Sanry's and the others are not changing Omani rials.
Based on foreign exchange calculators online:
1 Omani Rial = 116 pesos ( more or less)
but on the website of Naila's Money Changer, the exchange rate is:
1 Omani Rial = 70 pesos
and because 1 Omani Rial = 1,000 baisa
1,000 baisa = 70 pesos
100 baisa = 7 pesos
Kulang pa sa pamasahe sa jeep, halimbawa lang merong magpapalit nito. Eh kung mag UV Express ka pa.
We suggest, ipunin mo na lang ang mga 100 baisa mo, then gawin mong collection mo
or ibigay mo na lang sa OFW na nagtatrabaho sa Oman.
UPDATE as of June 27, 2016:
I saw on the Facebook page of Ans Money Changer that their exchange rate for Omani Rial is much higher than that of Naila's Money Changer.
1 Oman Riyal = 99 pesos
