Hi everyone!

I’m reading US government travel advisory site Cambodia.html and am a bit confused:

“CURRENCY RESTRICTIONS FOR ENTRY:

The import of local currency (Riel) is prohibited. When entering Cambodia, foreign currency amounts over US $10,000 must be declared.

CURRENCY RESTRICTIONS FOR EXIT:

The export of local currency (Riel) is prohibited. Foreign currency can be taken out of the country up to the limit declared at customs on arrival.”

Can I safely assume that the phrase “export/import of local currency is prohibited” doesn’t concern amounts under 10K? It’d be ridiculous to get in trouble for amounts like 100,000 Riel ($25).

Thank you!
