I would suggest you separate them. While stapling them together is "allowed" (the old passport is expired and invalid anyway, and staple marks on the back cover of a new passport are not material damage), there is generally no point to submitting old passports, since records are electronic these days. The only reason you might need an old passport ...

This belongs on Expatriates Stack Exchange. With your Finnish residence permit you can travel to other Schengen countries as if you had a 90/180 short term visa. Simplified, you can travel to talk about work, but you cannot travel to do work. In certain jobs the line can be hard to draw.

Immigration and visas are handled at the level of the Schengen Area, not the EU. The Schengen Area covers most of the EU, but some EU countries are not in Schengen (such as Ireland, Romania, Bulgaria...), while some non-EU countries are in Schengen (such as Switzerland, Norway...).

As opposed to checked baggage? On your person is better, certainly never in checked baggage. The airlines prefer this too. 10,000 Euro is not a lot of money, neither is 20,000. Perhaps we are just poorer than we think we are. It can be hard to find an ATM in many countries. Is Paris still using GPRS for taxi payments? How a city with such a low skyline gets ...

Can I take on-board large sum of cash (more than 10k euros) in my hand luggage? This may depend on the specific countries involved, bu in general the answer is yes. It is legal to carry as much cash as you want. That DOES NOT MEAN that you are allowed to bring the cash into the country. See the next point: I know I need to declare this cash at customs but ...

The point is that you might be allowed to carry the cash. Or not. The salient word here is "might". The border police is required to ask you both where the money comes from and what you are planning to use it for. As we all know, using cash is a way to sever the trail of money and is often used as part of money laundering. And this means that the ...

Cash must be declared even within Schengen countries. No fee is due on declared cash. That's your own money! You must call a customs officer at the departure airport and ask to declare money for >10000€ in cash. The reason is fighting money laundering and tax evasion. The declaration form contains your personal identification data, and your EU individual ...

Since you seem to be travelling entirely within the EU you will need to check with the customs offices of the countries you leave, pass through and enter what the arrangements are, since this hasn't been fully harmonised. As you state in the question, it's likely (but not absolutely guaranteed) that you'll need to fill in a national declaration form, but ...
