      There is no limit in US, not that I know of. I have transferred $9000 without any problem. I don't think money laundering law will be any hurdle in transferring, however it might raise security flag/investigations, if you have nothing to hide then you shouldn't be worrying about such investigation.

      In the US & UK on more than $6000 & GBP 3000 bank has to notify law enforcement agencies. Ehtasab, you can transfer millions, just have to go through security check/clearance.

      Kash speak to your Bank, i ran into a delayed money transfer, when i did it for the first time, amount was little over GBP 6000. it took 3 weeks, now it takes 2-4 business days.

      Banks notifiying law enforcement is different than "limit the transfer". The max you can transfer without appearing in LEA radar is $10,000 in US, don't know about UK.

      Easiest way is to open up a dollar account at one the Pakistani banks. Quite a few of them have offices in UK and US and we could walk in and open new account. I think UBL offers online as well.

      Once account is open, deposit your large check and do business in Pakistan without hassles.

      Even thou in the US banks do notify the government for any transacation that is over 10K per day, you don't have to do anything, this is something bank is required by law and should not worry too much if you are in the US. UK might be a very different story.

      I opened a CitiBank Dollar Account back home and one here. Now I transfer money between the accounts using ATM. The process takes less than a couple of minutes. I pay $10.00 per transaction here and $7 or something in the receiving bank back home. The limit with ATM is $5000. This is the fastest, most convenient, yet the cheapest way to transfer money now, for me anyway.

      There is no limit if you have a LEGIT reason and satisfy bank with your source of income.

      kash: Just go to your bank and ask for its policy. You should get an answer in 5 mins rather than speculating.

      there is limit you can send via money transfer service to single person in Pakistan i think £2000

      with bank i guess you can send as much you like if the money is already in your account. £17 for 10K and few more if its more than that.

      but you want to save hassle and cant declare the money for some reasons, desi money transfer guys do also make direct bank account transfer in Pakistan. just speak to one of them.
