    TEN THOUSAND APPEARS TO BE THE NORM FOR MOST COUNTRIES HOWEVER THAT REFERS TO "CASH IN HAND" ie ON YOUR PERSON. THERE IS NO REASON THAT I KNOW OF THAT YOU CANNOT HAVE A BANK DRAFT FOR ANY AMOUNT OR DO A BANK TRANSFER TO A BANK A/C IN WHAT EVER COUNTRY YOU ARE GOING TOO> YOUR LOCAL BANK SHOULD BE ABLE TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT IN ANOTHER COUNTRY IN YOUR NAME FOR YOU>
    LAST SUGGESTION TRANSFER ALL MONEY THAT YOU HAVE OVER 10GRAND TO ME AND I WILL FORWARD IT ON TO YOU IN YOUR NEW COUNTRY FOR A FEE. WHATS THAT "NOT BLOODY LIKELY" CMON I AM TRYING TO HELP YOU.

    Ten thousand dollars of US currency can be brought back to the USA, but every country has their limits, so check with the embassy for that country or countries you are going too.

    I would never carry 10K with me to certain foreign countries. Any amount over 5k now is recorded to the FBI. Not that you can not carry 10K back but you are going to need to prove were you got it and that can be a hassle. So keep you receipts and all money transfers you get from a legitimate bank. Bring some cash and go to a bank and exchange it into the currency of the country you are in. If not they will take advantage of you. You can always get a cash transfer from a local bank for at least 5k at a time and the transfer rate was $25 for up to 5K in Costa Rica, I believe. Also carry travelers checks for added security and just exchange them into the countries currency at a bank. You will not be "taken" as easily and your money will go much farther.

    I do not know but I wish you well and safe.

    Good answer PeopleLover, yea the check is in the mail, LOL. Thanks!
