CR1 Approved - Transferring Funds/Savings? - Qatar>USA

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife's CR1 visa has been approved, and she is preparing to immigrate to the US in approximately 1 month. She has been living and working in Qatar for the past 10 years as an expat. She has amassed considerable back-pay and savings while in Qatar (approx. $60kUSD). She currently holds no US bank accounts. I was wondering how she would go about transferring these funds from her accounts in Qatar to the US quickly (and legally of course). Can she simply transfer the funds into my (spouse) US bank accounts? Can she physically bring the funds with her? Or should she/does she have the ability to open a US bank-based account and make a transfer from her current bank (her current bank does not operate in the US, and she has not yet received a SS number). Any advice is appreciated.

My advice on this one is to seek an attorney for this question because although your intentions may be good others who are reading your post may not be.. None the less, it don't sound like a big problem. ( One many wish they had).... Good luck
