I am planning to carry less then 200 grams of gold with me in a flight from Turkey to Madrid. I wonder if this is okay and if I have to pay some taxes.


Bringing 10000 EUR in cash or equivalent -- which gold is -- requires a declaration. It's all fine and there's no VAT on gold but you need to declare. You might be even below that: today a gram is 44.45 EUR which means 200g is a bit below 9000 EUR. So: you should be fine. If gold surges between now and when you enter the EU you will need to declare.

    If it is in the shape of jewelry or other items, the value can be more than gold price. – Willeke Aug 31 '19 at 6:23
  • Then sharing it among several family members should be fine, right? – renakre Sep 1 '19 at 9:56
  • Now you are scheming to skirt the rules. Never do that. – chx Sep 1 '19 at 13:25
