Exchange of Swedish banknotes abroad

News The Riksbank has received information that it may be difficult to exchange Swedish banknotes abroad. This is not something the Riksbank has taken a decision on

Swedish currency from abroad is handled by foreign exchange companies, international banks, cash-processing companies and to some extent Swedish banks. The Riksbank is not involved in the process but is currently trying to find out more information.

For those travelling abroad, alternatives to exchanging banknotes abroad may be to exchange them in Sweden or to use other payment methods, such as cards that work abroad.
