From August 2020 when the Abinader administration began, until February of this 2024, the Customs Agency (DGA) reports the confiscation of over US$17 million in undeclared cash.

The cash has been seized by the DGA agents precisely because it was not declared on any Customs forms and is presumed to be illegal in origin.

During the previous Medina administration, the DGA had seized slightly less than six million dollars in suspected illicit monies.

So far in 2024. the DGA has taken in over US$350,000. This money is confiscated, investigated and is sent to the National Treasury. Money that is found to be of legitimate origin is returned to the rightful owners.

So much for bringing large sums of cash into the DR. What is the limit on the DR customs form w/o declaring?

I'm fairly certain that the DR regulations are similar to those of the US.

The US limit is $10,000.

You can bring any amount as long as you declare it and can prove where it came from.

It's the ones who do not declare their money who lose it.

"Money that is found to be of legitimate origin is returned to the rightful owners."

There's the catch - proving where it came from. You could be waiting a loooong time to get it back.
