Hi !. As far as I can remember , it is forbidden to export currency (and gold?) outside Maurtania .At the border @ gerguerat , the Maritanian Customs ask for a "currency & gold declaration Form" , in which the traveller is supossed to declare all -foreign- currencies with him .
The idea , -I think- was to avoid people exporting foreign currency (i.e. Euros) by ilicit sale of Cars. Upon exit , they can (and sometimes , they do ) search you , and -if found any Euros - , you should then show your Currency Declaration form , showing you already have them at entry.
In CS book , there's a reference of one car seller , being caught at the border this way! .
A few years ago , that was even worse , as ,they also checked HOW did you spend your foreign Currency (hence the need to keep the official receipts when changing money ). Then , you should show Customs that
In other words: In Mauritania , customs is only interested on your operation involving Euros , being importing them , Converting them , Earning them , and re-Exporting them . Keep those receipts ! .
