Sending to UAH
Who can I send UAH to?
You can send UAH to personal cards that are linked to UAH bank accounts registered in Ukraine.
You can’t send to junior cards (“Картка Юнiора”) or business cards/accounts.
What information do I need about my recipient?
You’ll need the first and last name of the recipient and their full card number.
When typing in the recipient’s name, please write their last name, first name, then patronymic (optional) in that order. Make sure there aren’t any typos or transliteration errors in the recipient’s name.
If your recipient has more than one first or last name, put the names together with capitalised initials, but without hyphens and spaces. For example: CruzDaCosta AnnaMaria
If you’re using iOS, you can only send to PrivatBank cards using the following details:
full first and last name of the recipient
last four digits of the recipient card
recipient’s phone number. This has to be the phone number they signed up for PrivatBank with. It should be 12 digits, starting with 380 (or +380). PrivatBank calls this a "financial number"
How much can I send?
If you’re sending to PrivatBank recipients, you can send up to 399,999 UAH per transfer.
If you’re sending to non-PrivatBank recipients, you can send up to 30,000 UAH per transfer.
How long does it usually take for the money to arrive?
Once we receive and convert your money, it usually arrives in your recipient’s account on the same working day. Conversion can take up to 2 working days.
We’ll always give you an estimate for how long your transfer will take when you set it up.
Are there any restrictions on sending to UAH?
Due to current EU sanctions, we can’t send UAH to Crimea or Sevastopol.
Is there any other information I need to know?
You can’t send UAH to email addresses right now.
