Instructions for lodging the cash declaration

If you enter or leave the European Union and you are carrying cash of a value of 10,000 euros or more, you have to declare it to the customs.

The simplest way is to declare cash electronically. In order to do so:

  • log into the e-MTA
  • select "Customs" from the menu on the left, then "Simplified declarations" and "Cash declaration"
  • on the customer desktop that opens, push the green button "New declaration"

You can submit an electronic declaration for up to three days before crossing the border. Once you have submitted the declaration, choose the red lane to pass through the customs office at the border and inform the customs official about lodging the declaration.
