How to travel with a large amount of cash or other monetary items

If you are travelling with a large amount of cash, or other monetary instruments like traveler’s checks, money orders, and bearer bonds, you should take common sense steps to protect yourself from unwanted attention, but you should also be aware of what legal issues you may have to address. What you have to do will depend on what country you are in, or whether you are traveling internationally.
