cash declaration

All travellers entering or leaving the European Union with €10,000 or more in cash must declare the sum to Customs.

This initiative has been taken to assist the efforts being made at EU level to tackle crime and improve security by cracking down on money laundering, terrorism and criminality.

For more information and a downloadable version of the declaration to bring more than €10,000 into the EU please refer to the German Custums website on http://http://www.zoll.de/english_version/a0_passenger_traffic/d1_movement_of_cash/a0_cash_third_countries/index.html
