What is restricted?

With the Rules on Foreign Exchange, no. 200/2017, which took effect on 14 March 2017, most restrictions on foreign exchange transactions and cross-border movement of domestic and foreign currency were lifted. Since then, households and businesses have not been affected by the restrictions provided for under the Act. Restrictions on specified transactions are still in place, however, with the aim of reducing the likelihood of carry trade in connection with investments in connection with new inflows of foreign currency. This page discusses the restrictions currently in effect.
