My recently married friend has received a 3,000,000yen cash gift from his Japanese MiL/ FiL. He wants to take this (about Aus$35,000) into Australia as cash. He will be travelling with his new bride, but is still obviously over the $10,000/ person cash limit. Can anyone advise what they should expect, and whether any of this cash (income) is taxable, given that it is a "wedding present"? He is an Aussie and she an Aussie resident. And yes, I have tried to convince him of other options to no avail. Any advice/ experiences shared appreciated.
