Hi please could I ask for some advise .. I have checked the FAQ section re how much currency I can take into Malaysia, it states RM1000 per person however I have read this on the Foreign & Common Wealth Office website ....
Entry Requirements - Exchange control rules
Under current Malaysian exchange control rules, you may import or export up to 10,000 Malaysian Ringgit per person without prior approval. There are no limits on the amount of foreign currency (notes and or travellers' cheques) you may import or export. However, if your currency exceeds the equivalent of USD 10,000 you are required to declare this to the customs authorities on entry and/or exit. Penalties for non-declaration or false declaration include a fine of up to RM 1 million and/or up to three years’ imprisonment.
Can anyone please advise which is correct, I assume the FCO should be!!
