More than $10,000 (or equivalent) in cash, must be declared.

There are also 24 hour branches of the State Bank of India and Thomas Cook in the arrival and departure areas of the international airport. The Indian currency is the rupee (Rs), which has 100 paisa. There are coins of 25, 50 paise and also coins of Rs. 1, 2, 5. There are notes of Rs. 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500. Check out current Exchange Rates.
