Iceland's prime minister announced on 12 March 2017 the lifting of the last remaining capital controls, in place since the collapse of the country's biggest banks during the financial crisis in 2008.

The restrictions had been imposed to prevent panicked foreign investors from taking their money out of Iceland.
