You must declare currency: over US$3,000 or equivalent value

I never really gave it much thought . I've always carrried a money pouch underneath my jeans. i had several thousands dollars each time. I would of used my credit card but i'm in the country side several hours south of Saigon never saw an atm or a lady that would take 20,000 dong off my credit card for some fruit. Take Scotts advice, or google it.

The same limit applys any time you send money over through a wire transfer,, I have wired over 3k at a time and not had to pay a tariff but I did have to pay the transfer fee... The US govt wants to know any big transfers of $ out of the country as well.... its not just an import thing... they are working really hard tracking $ going to terrorist cells... not that there are any in VN.. :bonk:

like was noted in another topic about taking numerous cell phones.. it all depends on who is watching the scanner at the customs check station...

They lowered it to 3 thousand a few years ago. It was the reason that when I went to VN to meet my fiancee that her uncle paid for my plane ticket and I gave him the money after we arrived in VN. He carried the max in a money belt also.
