I am going back to England for a month in August and obviously need to take some of my hard earned cash with me. It seems I have 4 options.
- 1) Do a bank transfer (I bank with BOC, and as I have worked on a F visa since I have been here as I freelance I do not have the FEC or tax receipts, so I dont know if I will be able to do this)
2) Use Western Union. I don't really understand how it works. Do I have to get someone in the UK to pick the money up and deposit it into my bank account or can I just wire it to direct to my bank? Also you said doing this requires US dollars. Where would I buy them without the documentation?
3) Buy GB Pounds and take the money in cash on the plane. Where would I buy GB pounds without the documentation?
4) Get my girlfriend to wire it for me to my bank. If this is a good option then which bank is best to do this?
Thank you in advance for your help. The amount I want to transfer is around 9000 RMB if that helps with your answer.
