Currency Regulations

There are no restrictions on the amount of foreign currency or travelers' cheques a tourist may bring into India provided he/she makes a declaration in the Currency Declaration Form given to him on arrival.

Cash, bank notes and traveler`s cheques up to US$ 1,000 or equivalent, need not be declared at the time of entry.Traveler`s cheques are easily encashed in major hotels and banks. Major business houses and hotels accept almost all credit cards. Any money in the form of travelers' cheques, drafts, bills, cheques, etc. in convertible currencies, which tourists wish to convert into Indian currency, should be exchanged only through authorized money changers and banks who will issue an encashment certificate that is required at the time of re-conversion of any unspent money into foreign currency. Exchanging of foreign currency other than banks or authorized moneychangers is an offense under Foreign Exchange Regulations Act 1973.
