Q: Is it legal to leave China with thousands of dollars?

I read, on this site, that it is not permitted to leave China with loads of RMB but what about dollars?
I am saving money and every now and then I change it to dollars, hoping the dollar will recover. Will it be difficult to leave the country with it?

Dont take the chance. Its not worth the risk. when you are ready to head home just have it sent to a home side bank account via western union or something of the like. Better yet, start sending it now so that you dont pay as much as you would sending a big lump sum.

its true that they dont always check. but you really dont want to be the exception.

Well if you are going to try, you do have a chance of making it without a problem. Or if they do stop you, well then you get to enjoy some nice long conversations on why you are smuggling "drug" money.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
