What is the currency in Croatia in 2023?
Croatia is set to join the European Union and adopt the euro on Jan. 1, 2023. This development will also see the country retire its native Croatia currency, the Kuna (HRK), on the same date.
Croatia will abandon its native currency, the Kuna, in favour of the euro early next year.
Payset will support users throughout the transition and convert user assets to euros as required beginning on December 12, 2022.
Kuna Exchange Rate Announced
The Council of the European Union has officially announced Croatia’s transition to the new currency and has set an exchange rate of 7.53450 HRK = 1 EUR. Conversely, 1 HRK = 0.13272 EUR under the established exchange rate.
Croatia entered the EU’s Exchange Rate Mechanism II (ERM II) in 2020, which allowed it to establish a conversion rate at an early date and avoid possible devaluation.
The country’s engagement with EU regulators also means that multiple banks in the country have been supervised by the European Central Bank since 2020.
Croatian National Bank, the country’s central bank, has agreed to monitor developments around the kuna in the forex market until Jan. 1, 2023.
The Eurozone Is Expanding
Most European countries have now adopted the euro. With its entry into the union next year, Croatia will become the twentieth EU member state to do so.
Countries already using the euro include Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain, among others.
Lithuania joined the EU in 2015 and is the most recent country to adopt the euro. Romania and Bulgaria are expected to join the EU in the near future.
Croatia’s adoption of the euro should bring the country into a stronger economic position. Boris Vujcic, governor of the Croatian National Bank, has stated that EU membership will “bring [Croatia] more security, lower risks, increase investment ratings, and raise living standards.”
What It Means for Payset Customers
Payset will stop supporting the Kuna (HRK) on Dec. 12, 2022.
If you are a Payset user and hold Kuna funds, you should withdraw, convert, or move that balance into a Payset euro account before that date. Otherwise, your kuna balance will be automatically converted to euros.
