I'll be travelling to Europe from India in a few days.

While I have got some currency (Euro) from the Indian bank, I just wanted to ask if I can purchase some Euro (against Indian Rupee) from the airport at India while leaving. If yes, is there any minimum Euro amount that I need to purchase for?

Also for the forex I have got from the bank, the bank has given me a Sales invoice. Is that enough and the only thing I need to show at the airport for the forex ?

Yes, you can purchase Euros against your Indian ruppee at the international airport you'll be departing from. All international airports in India have Forex services.

Usually, as far as Government regulations is concerned, there is no minimum amount which you have to exchanged, but that depends on the discretion of the service provider. There is however, a maximum limitation applicable as per Government regulations (in Indian context, Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999)

Delhi International Airport has two service providers for Forex services - Central Bank of India and Thomas Cook.

Mumbai International Airport has the following service providers in International departure terminal:

  • Centrum
  • Travelex
  • Central Bank of India
  • Akbar Travels
  • Thomas Cook

Thx a lot for the details...For the Sales invoice, could you please help me understand the same...I have got the sales invoice for around 1250 Euros (Cash+Travel card) from ICICI bank...Is that enough and needs to be shown at the airport ? –  testndtv Jan 23 at 12:07
    
Yes, that is enough in case you are asked by customs to show the forex you're carrying and the receipt. Though, that is a highly improbable event for normal travelers. –  Incognito Jan 23 at 12:21
