UKRAINIAN MONEY AND EXCHANGE

The monetary unit of the present-day Ukraine is hryvnia.

Money can be exchanged at banks, exchange desks at hotels, shops or licensed exchange windows. Passport is not required for exchange operations. Exchange rate might differ from the official National Bank of Ukraine rate.

As of January 26, 2016: 1 dollar= 24.95 hryvnia.

USD and EURO are the most popular currencies in exchange booths. Other currencies are more difficult to exchange and have lower rates due to minor circulation in Ukraine.

VISA, MasterCard / EuroCard are accepted in major hotels, restaurants, casinos, stores, ATM's.

Owners of American Express will experience problems when using their cards even in regional centers.

Traveler's checks and credit cards can be cashed less out of a bank fee (which is 1-4% of the amount) at the majority of banks. Most popular Travelers checks in Ukraine are Thomas Cook and Visa. To cash travelers checks, the receipt of purchase and passport of check owner is required.

The letter code of the currency is UAH, with numerical code 980, abbreviated form as "грн" in Cyrillic.
