The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas did not advise about declaration on the customs variety. Does Philippine Customs distribute new kinds for travellers? The outdated variety however incorporates the limit of PHP / USD 10,000. Perhaps travellers will even now have to declare quantities over PHP / USD 10,000. This stage is not crystal clear. Perhaps all those with far more than 10,000 pesos will nonetheless have to declare but do not want a prepared authorization from the BSP. Likely clarification will come next week – maybe…
