Declaring cash at customs

An individual traveling to or from the U.S. with cash (including traveler’s checks) in excess of $10,000 must declare the amount to U.S. Customs. Many other countries restrict the amount of cash that an individual may bring in or out of the country. One consequence of noncompliance with these requirements may be confiscation of the cash.  Please see Section 2 of Obtaining Cash for Yale Activities Abroad for more detailed guidance on these requirements.
