According to the Phillipine Consulate in Australia:

No permit is required from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas to bring in to or to take out from the Philippines of foreign currencies. However, foreign currency in excess of US$10,000 carried by the traveler must be declared at the Bureau of Customs Desk in the airport.

Therefore the answer to your question is: you can import as much cash as you want (in foreign currencies), but amounts over 10000USD must be declared.

"Forreign currencies" include all currencies except the Phillippine peso.

  • Hello, By foreign currencies you mean dollars for example? My home currencies is in MAD ( Moroccan dirhams ), Do I need to exchange that to USD or Euro first? or to Philippine pesos?

    @reda since Moroccan dirhams are not widely accepted outside Morocco you should change them to USD or EUR first.
