You must declare cash of €10,000 or more (or the equivalent in another currency) if you take it between the UK and any non-European Union (EU) country.
- notes and coins
- bankers’ drafts
- cheques of any kind (including travellers’ cheques)
If you’re travelling as a family you need to declare cash over €10,000.
Download and fill in form C9011 or get a copy at the port or airport.
Make a copy - if you fill in the form at the port or airport, it automatically makes a carbon copy.
Leave a copy in the drop-box at the port or airport and keep the other to show custom officers.
You could face a penalty of up to £5,000 if you don’t declare your cash or give incorrect information.
Your declared cash can be seized by customs officers if they have reasonable grounds to suspect a crime. They can keep the cash for 48 hours - after that they need a court order.
