Customs Declaration Regulations for travellers entering or leaving the EU and carrying € 10.000 or more in cash

All travellers entering or leaving the European Union and carrying € 10.000 or more in cash, its equivalent in other currencies or easily convertible assets (e.g. traveller's cheques, bearer cheques and bonds) must declare the sum to Customs. This initiative has been taken to assist the efforts against organized crime and terrorism by combating money laundering and cross-border funding of terrorism. Detailed information as well as the declaration forms in multiple languages are provided by the websites of the European Union Commission as well as German Customs Authorities.
