As for how to transfer it, if it’s a large amount them bank transfer is probably the way to go. But look around for a good rate.


Tax-wise, it’s the same if you keep the money there or bring it to the US. There’s no tax issue transferring from one account to another. You may need to file an FBAR if the amount/value held abroad is over $10,000.
