In order to control money laundering, Kaohsiung Customs will perform duties in accordance with the amended and promulgated Regulations for the Declaration of Cross-Border Objects Likely to Be Used for Money Laundering, which is to take effect from June 28, 2017. It states that a passenger or a service crew member arriving at or departing from the country on a flight (or voyage) within the same day shall be required to declare with customs authorities if he or she is carrying the following objects: cash in foreign currency bearing a total value more than ten thousand US dollars (US$10,000), currencies issued in Hong Kong or Macau, cash in NT dollars amounting to more than NT$100,000, securities bearing a total face value in excess of ten thousand US dollars (US$10,000), gold valued at more than ten thousand US dollars (US$10,000), or other objects with a total value more than ten thousand US dollars (US$10,000) which are likely to be used for money laundering.
