Travelling with, or sending cash
Unaccompanied cash is cash that is sent by post, freight or courier. If unaccompanied cash with a value of €10,000 or more is sent into, or out of, the European Union (EU), Customs can do the following:
- request that a Cash disclosure declaration form be completed within 30 days. Where the space available on the form is not sufficient, additional sheets may be used by completing a Cash disclosure additional sheet form
- request the declaration for this unaccompanied cash from the sender, the recipient, or a representative acting on their behalf
- carry out controls on any consignment, package, or means of transport which may contain unaccompanied cash.
