Hello Guys,

I am on H1B, how many Dollars can i carry in cash to india. Is there a limit as such?






  1. A person coming into India from abroad can bring with him foreign exchange without any limit. However, if the aggregate value of the foreign exchange in the form of currency notes, bank notes or travellers cheques brought in exceeds USD 10,000/- or its equivalent , it should be declared to the Customs Authorities at the Airport in the Currency Declaration Form (CDF), on arrival in India.

    Please check the following link for details:

  2. I believe the limit is 10000 USD.

    But it really matters if you just want to keep the USD.

    If you are anyways going to convert it to rupees after going back to India, do not take the risk of carrying cash.

  3. It doesn't matter what visa you hold ; you can carry as much as you want. But, if if you are carrying morethan 10,000 USD in cash , you  must declare it. You can declare the same in the customs declaration form while landing in India ...
