Ukrainian Currency

The official currency of Ukraine is the hryvnia (UAH).  The current official exchange rate can be found at the National Bank of Ukraine website

Hryvnias are required to pay for goods and services in Ukraine.

Foreign currency can be exchanged at banks and numerous exchange bureaus throughout the country. Exchange points will often not accept worn or torn bills.

Credit cards are widely accepted (American Express less so) and contactless payment is becoming increasingly popular.
