Regardless of the source every banknote that is received at Guardian International Currency is hand counted and checked by our expert staff.

We do use machine counts to double check our work but in our experience nothing compares to the human eye and touch when it comes to detecting counterfeit banknotes.

Each country may set a limit on the amount of currency you can either bring into the country or take out of it.

Restrictions are generally placed as part of a country's monetary policy.

Many countries have no restrictions but may limit what you can leave their country with based on what you declared when you entered.

This limit may be set on the local currency for the country as well as on various foreign currencies.

There may be different limits for visitors/non-residents compared to residents.

While not an issue affecting most travellers it is always a good idea to check the customs information for any country you are visiting or travelling through.  Contravening currency import/export restrictions may result in confiscation, fines or other penalties.

Guardian International Currency is not responsible for any infringment of currency import/export regulations.
