Immigration Issues/HOW MUCH MONEY


Dear Mr. Mills,

Would you please tell me how much cash a new legal resident can bring with him to US apon his arrival after obtaining his Green Card?

I greatly appreciate your help,

Babak Pasha

This really is not an immigration question and may vary according to the country (some countries restrict the movement of cash from their country), however, I seem to remember that cash of more than $10,000 needs to be declared to customs.  Normally, large amounts of cash are brought in through international banks.
