Movement of goods and money

Departing from Spain

When travelling abroad, there is no limit to the amount of money and goods that you can take with you. However, amounts of money, securities or values worth equal or more than 10,000 euros per person should be declared in customs when leaving or entering the national territory.

Before travelling, read up on current regulations regarding the movement of goods and means of payment in your country of destination.

Within national territory, you should declare movements of coins, notes or any other physical or electronic means of payment for amounts equal to or greater than 100,000 euros.

Entering into Spain

When entering the national territory, amounts of money, securities or values worth equal or more than 10,000 euros per person should be declared in customs.

The Agencia Tributaria (Tax Agency) establishes a limit of 430 euros for the total value of goods transported in personal baggage. For any values over this amount, passengers will no longer be exempt from paying import duties, VAT and special taxes. This limit is reduced to 150 euros for children under 15 years old.

Personal goods will be considered as those acquired occasionally, which are for the personal or family use of the travellers, or gifts that, due to their nature and quantity, cannot be assumed to be the subject of commercial activity.
