Having sold an appt. in El Gouna - we wish to bring money back to the UK. Transaction is in USD - what can we bring out in cash and how do we transfer the rest.
No problem receiving it here, details easy but how to release it from Egypt. Agent says he has it all in
cash ! Putting it through their company account will incur a charge of 22%.
Can we open an account while there and wire money to the UK. Have been told the banks want to keep the money for 6 months before transferring - is this on a certain amount?
