In addition, in the operations for the export of goods, the NBU allowed Ukrainian banks to close their currency oversight after the bank’s letter of credit has been paid (previously – only after the non-resident buyer had transferred the contract price to the resident seller’s local current account).
The above change was one of the steps on the path of currency liberalization proclaimed and implemented by the NBU since 2018. Additionally, on May 7, 2019, the NBU adopted changes to its effective regulations increasing the limit on the repatriation of dividends from EUR 7,000,000 to EUR 12,000,000 per month[](https://www.integrites.com/publications/recent-developments-in-ukrainian-currency-regulations/#_ftn1). The NBU continues declaring that the said limit is planned to be completely cancelled in the future.
