Currency declaration

Post by JohnW » Thu Feb 24, 2011 2:51 pm

Have read about having to declare currency when arriving:

- does this include travellers cheques?
- how is the declaration made - is there a form to fill in?

This requirement is related to laws against money laundering, and applies especially to large amounts of cash.
Traveller Cheques are "monetary instruments" and therefore included. Credit cards are not an issue.
The declaration is made on the immigration / customs entry form, which you are required to complete during
your flight to Tonbago. Blank forms will be distributed by flight attendants before arrival in Tobago.
