does any one try to bring in more than 10,000 AUD to australia , what will happen after declaring that you carry more , for example 40,000 ?
There is no limit on the amount of physical currency or
bearer negotiable instruments you can bring in or take
out of Australia.
However, you must declare amounts of AUD$10,000
(or foreign currency equivalent) or more using the
AUSTRAC Cross Border Movement – Physical
Currency form. You will need to see an ACBPS
officer if you require this form. More information
regarding AUSTRAC reporting can be found at
