How to deposit EUR via International Wire to your Kraken account

If you're not a resident of the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA), you may still be able to fund your Kraken account with Euros via an international wire transfer.

Depending on your region and verification level, you may find deposit instructions as follows:

  • Sign in to your Kraken account.
  • Go to the Funding > Deposit > EURO (EUR) page.
  • Select “Wire Transfer" from the drop down menu and follow the displayed instructions.

Be sure to instruct your bank to transmit the funds in EUR only. Funds transmitted in any other currency will be rejected because our bank (Fidor) accepts EUR only.

To help your deposit go smoothly, go through our deposit checklist before sending any funds.

If you don't see the EUR option on your Funding > Deposit page, it means that your verification level is not high enough and/or your region is not supported by our banking partners.

No EUR withdrawals outside of SEPA

Please note that only clients with bank accounts in the SEPA zone can withdraw EUR.

If you deposit EUR but live outside of the SEPA zone, you won't be able to withdraw EUR and you might not be able to withdraw any fiat currency at all.
