The National Bank of Poland (NBP) will also allow Ukrainian refugees to convert hryvnia (UAH) to Polish zloty (PLN). NBP has also made a USD 1 billion swap line available to Ukraine’s central bank.
In response to the difficulties with exchanging hryvnia faced by Ukrainian refugees, NBP announced on Monday that starting from March 25, Ukrainians in Poland will be able to exchange banknotes in denominations 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 – up to the total of UAH 10,000 per one adult. The UAH-PLN conversion rate will be determined jointly by NBP and the Ukrainian side.
