Q: How many RMB can you take in and out of China?

I'm going to be leaving China soon after my trip in the south, and I was wondering if there was a limit of RMB I can take back with me...or even in for that matter. I came to China with 17,000 RMB in my carry-on without even wondering if there was a limit...

The best is change your money before you leave China.. into USD, euros or pounds... most banks currently abroad don't accept rmb.

Well customs have their own limits, but as far as China is concerned.... you can bring as much in as you want, but good luck trying to get it out.

My bank provided me with this information. Hope it helps.
RMB20,000 cash can be carried out of China. Up to USD$5,000 equivalent can be carried out of China in foreign currency (cash). Amounts greater than US$5000 and up to US$10000 will require a permit for Taking Foreign Currency Out of Customs Territory issued by the FX designated bank. A Permit for an amount over US$10000 needs to be applied from SAFE directly.

You should spend your leftover money to buy gifts for your family members. Wink

This is uncomfirmed by me with regulators, but reputable online sources say that Chinese nationals can only transfer out $50,000 in cash each year, per person. This means that husband and wife can transfer out $50,000 each or $100,000USd each year or $200,000 in 13 months. This is a lot and equivalent to 1.26 Million RMB every 24 months. I don't think too many will be doing this. I have never heard of a limit for foreigners to transfer money out but one might exist. I am sure global banks like HSBC or Citi would have answers for you.

Chinese will not let you leave with money easily.so my advice is to send it to your bank account abroad and then leave the country

A:Weird jobs you say? China has plenty. The guys who work in bath houses and whose job it is to scrub guys down... that's got to suck.I've seen it. There will be a (usually fat) naked dude lying on a table, and the scrubber who is also near naked goes over him top to bottom with what looks like a scouring glove. They get right in there..lift the nuts, spread the cheeks and everything. God knows why anyone would pay for that but it seems they do. Then there are the eunuchs who became high-ranking public servants back in the day.Nowadays I don't think it's very common for them to be high-ranking, I think most just became wumaos - but a lot of them self castrated themselves to get the job.It must have been a hell of a decision to make...if you decide you'd prefer to be a plumber or rickshaw driver after a couple of years on the job there's no reversing the surgery. The people who stand in front of a shoe or clothing store and clap to attract customers- sometimes they will chant in unison - that's another job I always thought was bizarre. The supermarket staff whose job seems to be to stand in groups of three gossiping and blocking the aisles so you can't go down them, you have to turn around and go down the next aisle that probably has a sale on shampoo or expired tofu that day. The 'English Teachers' who can't communicate with the foreign teachers, or even their students in English but will tell anyone who listens how the foreign speaker is 'wrong'.Their jobs seem to be to unteach whatever English the kids are able to pick up.It's strange, but they do exist. If you're really looking for a great career though I suggest being the worthless lazy offspring of someone with good connections. Being stupid will help your prospects a lot.You'll be given a job with a decent salary, pension etc and all you need to do is play with your phone all day and be you. You'll never be asked to do anything or probably even show up at the office. In fact they'd probably prefer it if you just kept out of the way.      -- Stiggs
