Bank account access of Ukrainian citizens

Bank account access of Ukrainian citizens

Deputy Prime Minister Assen Vassilev and Deputy PM Kalina Konstantinova have discussed with representatives of the Association of Banks in Bulgaria and the BNB a mechanism to facilitate bank account access of Ukrainian citizens who have applied for temporary protection status in Bulgaria under the EU Temporary Protection Directive.

According to representatives of the banking sector, Ukrainian citizens can currently withdraw BGN from their debit and credit cards "Visa" and "MasterCard" within the limits set by the respective Ukrainian banks. They can also pay for goods and services in Bulgaria through terminals.

When it comes to the possibilities for exchanging and buying Ukrainian currency, none of the EU countries has bought such currency so far. A pan-European solution is expected at the level of the European Central Bank.
