    Hi,

    I would like to know if any of you brought cash from india to usa ?
    What is the limit ?
    Would this amount be required to be declared in customs in both countries ?
    After bringing the money to USA, where to deposit it ? Would there be any hassles?
    After you bring the cash to USA, are you required to file taxes on that amount?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Am not sure why you need Indian cash here in US. Anyway I bring just couple of thousands, as it would be easier to pay for travel to home from airport when we land back. I dont know the exact limit, but am sure you could carry atleast till 5000Rs without declaring in the customs.

    I carry my Indian ATM & credit cards when I travel to US, so that when I travel back to India, I can withdraw from ATMs or make purchases using credit cards.
