Say I want to take 15,000 US dollars out of the US. The destination is country "B" (say somewhere in middle-east), but I also have a connection in country "A" (say somewhere in Europe). I am aware that I need to comply with the rules in the US (FinCEN 105) and with the destination country "B" (whatever rule it is). But what about the rules in country "A"; do I have investigate the travel rules in country "A" (the connection country) to see if I have to fulfill any requirements?

  • Will you remain airside in country “A” or will you need to clear Customs & Immigration?

    Please see this from 2017. "Passengers carrying €10,000 or more in cash have to declare the money to customs officials even if they remain in the international transit areas of EU airports, the European Court of Justice found Thursday." Apr 21, 2021 at 19:12

    @WeatherVane A google-fu based answer is still an answer. And having answer allows for closure, rather than giving the appearance of the question going unanswered.

    @Harper-ReinstateMonica I think deleting is not the best option. The comments can be helpful for others seeking the same info. I have already found many useful info in the comment section of the questions (with or without accepted answers) Apr 23, 2021 at 4:47
