On 3 March 2016 the National Bank of Ukraine (the “NBU”) extended most of the temporary currency control measures*. At the same time, the NBU decided to ease certain restrictions**, in particular:

  • Daily threshold amount for purchases of cash hard currency by clients was increased from UAH 3,000 to UAH 6,000;
  • Daily threshold amount for cash withdrawals in foreign currency by clients was increased from the equivalent of UAH 20,000 to UAH 50,000;
  • Daily threshold amount for cash withdrawals in UAH by clients was increased from UAH 300,000 to UAH 500,000.

The mentioned measures will be effective through 8 June 2016.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated on the issue.
