    Default over 10000 NZz$ - Declaration at airport

    Hi,
    I was wondering if I need to show any special documents if I declare money at AKL airport (around 10000 Euro). Is there a fee that needs to be paid, or something that needs to be considered?

    Hi,

    If you are carrying it in cash then you need to declare it and customs/immigration will want to know why you are carrying such a large amount of cash. If you are entering with permanent residency then they may be more understand, anything else will seem suspicious - especially if the cash is still in Euro, not NZD. If they are not happy with your reasoning (PR or not), they will seize ALL the money from you, and you may be fined/imprisoned/deported. It's all part of a money laundering/drug trafficing/anti-terrorism process. It's really not a good idea to be carrying so much cash through immigration (or anywhere!) to be honest.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
