Smile How much money that my parents can bring to the us?

Dear experts,

My parents just got visa to the US, but they don't know if there are any limitations of how much money they can bring to the US. Please advise me.

Thanks & I'd very appreciate about that,

Ed

Assuming that by "money" you mean cash/cash equivalent USD, the short answer is USD 10000 or less.

Hope this helps.

I'd appreciate about that. Sorry for giving not clear info. about my parents' case. As you assumed, they intend to bring cash to the US. If they want to bring more than $10,000, is it possible & what should they do inn that case?

Thanks

They can bring any amount. Above $10000 need to be declared at port of entry (in Customs Declaration form). That's all about it

Laws are strict about that. Read department of state website about these. Don't take chances.

There are no risk if you declare the amount. The US law is very clear. Anything above $10K must be declared but there is no limit on how much you can bring

There are Indian Customs restrictions on carrying foreign currency cash out of India. Though the rules on Indian Customs website are vague and they only mentioned Foreign Tourists leaving India, I believe an Indian Resident leaving India for tourism purpose is allowed to carry up to USD 2000 in cash. Any amount more than that should be in form of traveler's cheque or bank draft.

Thanks so much for all your replies. I'd appreciate all your help! I spent a lot of time to search on the gov. web site, but cannot find the answer (), but now I'm clear.

Have a nice Friday & very nice weekend!

You are right. Reserve Bank of India

Also, coming as Visitor, Indian Government will not release more than USD10,000 to them. For any amount above that they need special permission from RBI

Carrying large amounts of cash at this point is a very bad idea. If you need to transfer large amounts of cash, go through wire / western union etc.
