Sending Money Out of PI

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience sending money electronically (i.e. Western Union, Moneygram) FROM the PI TO the USA?

A friend of ours (in the USA) asked if we would mind bringing back $3,000 with us to the USA from the PI when we return later this year. My response was, why not have the person who owes you the money send it back to you via Moneygram?  

Good friend... but our response was "nope, not running around with your money in cash" when it's possible to transfer it electronically easier and safer without us.

Nothing nefarious on the origin of the money... they (living in the USA) sold their home in the PI to their sister (living in the PI). And yeah, the fact they get anything back is pretty amazing in my view.

I wired money from my bank in P. I. to USA. But I have an account at that bank and that might be required. It might be easier to use one of the services you mention, but I have no experience with that.

we sent 100k to san diego California last month via Western union, fee was 7k if memory serves.

I got the feeling but kould not swear to it the fee might depend where it is being sent

I think that you can bring $10,000 US with you with no problem if you declare it. No reporting to the IRS or anything. You could send it to him once you were in the US. You said it was a good friend so something to consider?:89:
