    If you have someone else send you up to $1k US dollars, paying in store, the fee is $8 if you receive it in store or your bank account. That's less than 1%. If you only send $200, using that method, the fee is still $8 which is 4%. Consider your options on how to send and receive your transfers...

    Legal/logistical things besides visa/residency to prepare before moving from USA?

    Legal/logistical things besides visa/residency to prepare before moving from USA?

    Hello, Sorry to hear that you both have Covid. I had it a few months ago and did call for home visits once or twice. I imagine someone more knowledgable than me will reply in the morning.

    Western Union money transfer

    About two years ago, I asked at a couple of different Pago Facil/Western Union stores in my neighborhood if I could transfer money using Western Union to Mercado Pago, and they said that I couldn't. But who knows, the next time you go to Western Union ask them if it is possible now.
