If you enter or leave Denmark, or are in transit, and are carrying more than EUR 10,000 (approx. DKK 75,000), you must always declare the amount to the Danish Customs Agency (Toldstyrelsen).

This applies regardless of the currency and regardless of whether the money is in the form of cash, traveller's cheques or securities.

This also applies if you are sending amounts corresponding to DKK 75,000 or more from Denmark, or if you receive an amount of this size from abroad.

You must also declare the amount to us, even if you are only in transit and are staying in Danish customs territory for a short period of time, for example in a car or train, or if you are going ashore from a ship.

It is your duty to declare the amount, regardless of whether you are a private individual or a business. If you are not the owner of the money but are carrying it as a courier or a driver, you must still declare the amount.

Remember that available funds (notes, coins, etc.) are considered goods and as a result such funds must also be declared according to the ordinary custom declaration rules.

Please see our legal guide (in Danish) for further legal information.
