Individual currency licenses are issued by all regional offices of the National Bank of Ukraine. But it is important to note that after the application for a license is filed the individual or company that applied will be subject to inspections.

Once a banking institution receives an application for obtaining a license to conduct operations with foreign currency, such an institution must “inform of this the special department on fighting organized crime at the State Security Service and Ministry of Internal Affairs”. And the license itself will only be issued after green light is granted by the abovementioned law-enforcing bodies.
