I will very soon get my green card through consular processing, then I will come and live permanently in the USA. My question is that I want to bring some money with me from my savings of my current job. The problem is that I don't have a bank account in the US. I know that I am allowed to bring only 10K on me. What are some options that you can advise when it comes to traveling to the US and bringing money. Thanks for any valuable tips.
There is no limit to the amount of money in cash you can bring in with you, and you will not be "taxed" on it. You must, however declare any amount over $10,00O to what used to be "US Customs" and is now the CBP at the airport. They will have you fill out a Form, count the money and even give you an armed CBP escort put of the airport to a car which will be hopefully waiting to whisk you away.
