In April 2022, the NBU allowed such transfers. After it, the Ukrainians were able to financially help their relatives abroad. Now the National Bank believes that the role of such support for citizens abroad is decreasing. The risks of using it to bypass restrictions on buying currency are increasing.
“Considering this, such a measure will help protect Ukraine's international reserves, which are important, in particular, for the smooth operation of the economy and for defense procurement”, the NBU said.
Citizens of Ukraine will be able to transfer funds abroad to pay for: education – to the accounts of educational institutions, treatment, transportation of patients with expenses associated with death, alimony.
In addition, Ukrainians will be able to transfer funds between hryvnia payment cards of Ukrainian banks, regardless of the country of the client's actual residence.
We also retained permission for P2P transfers from currency cards of Ukrainian banks to bank cards within a monthly limit of UAH 100,000 (equivalent).
