Customs regulations in general
If travelling or moving to Germany customs rules of the European Union apply.
The German customs authorities have put up an English website so you are able to inform yourself before you travel. If you carry larger amounts of cash on you, please note that you have to fill in a declaration if the amount exceeds the value of 10.000 Euros. In case of families travelling together customs officers expect that each person carries an amount less than 10.000 Euro personally.
