    Changes in Requirements for Uruguay Bank Accounts?

    Besides BROU what are some of the banks that are good to try to get an account at? And that do NOT have a $50K minimum?

    Pastured Organic Beef

    I'm interested in organic pastured (both) meat: beef, lamb or pork. Please let me know if you have sources. I'm willing to pay extra for a high-quality private farmer who sells. Also is there any place in Argentina that grows iberico or mangalitsa pigs?

    Max Purchase US$200 per Month for individuals..!

    It's definitely not an international standard, each country sets its own limits of course. Many countries have only $5000, while others like Brazil have 10K in their own currency.

    Max Purchase US$200 per Month for individuals..!

    Sorry if I ask obvious question but why does this matter? Does anyone actually use banks to change currency here? As far as I know there are still many cuevas, don't they use the blue rate? Why does it matter what the formal restrictions are?

    Dollars in Uruguay?

    Is there any way to send dollars to yourself in Uruguay? I don't want to have to just use the ATM's because of daily limits, but to be able to send myself money in larger amounts and be able to pick it up in dollars. Is there a way to do this either with a cash purchase with card or with wire...

    Pastured Organic Beef

    Thank you perry. Unfortunately I did try amics once and I found their meat to be difficult to eat. Yes they do have pastured beef in the back if you ask for it, but it will be often old and not taste good. I will try Res if you recommend it. Kobe beef also sounds good. If anyone else has any...

    Pastured Organic Beef

    Where can I buy pastured/grass fed and organic beef? I need it to be both, because I am concerned about pesticide use on grasslands here. I understand the steakhouse Don Julio sources its own beef directly from small farms meeting this requirement, and I find the quality of their beef very good...

    Changes in Requirements for Uruguay Bank Accounts?

    How important is this "insurance" warning? Is it just a formality or are there cases where foreigners have actually had their accounts seized or lost on little or no pretext? How "safe" is it to keep your money in a Uruguayan bank?

    Changes in Requirements for Uruguay Bank Accounts?

    This has been the case for a while however most banks will start an account for an American citizen, there's just extra paperwork... But I was wondering if they had become stricter this year or what any new requirements might be.

    I have it on good authority that it is now $50K, you should call them to confirm. What is the best bank to do this?

    Changes in Requirements for Uruguay Bank Accounts?

    I'm asking regarding any changes that have been made to requirements for starting bank accounts in Uruguay (for foreigners). BBVA raised its minimum this year from $15K to $50K. I was wondering if anyone has any other information regarding similar changes for other banks. What are the...

    How Hard is it to Start a Bank Account in Uruguay?

    I know there are older threads on this, but was wondering if there are any recent changes or updates. I'm an EU citizen with a EU passport. I'm curious especially to know if you need a local address (or an Argentinian) address to start an account. And if there are any banks that require less...

    Thanks. Do you know any that are reputable? Especially in Uruguay, where I'd feel safer receiving.

    How Can I Bring Money to Argentina/Uruguay?

    Thanks to all for the answers. For now it looks like the only option is to carry over $20K physically. It's legal but I think there are significant risks of being mugged or whatever. No one has any info on whether banks in Uruguay accept bitcoin or whether you can easily exchange bitcoin for...

    How Can I Bring Money to Argentina/Uruguay?

    My concerns about that are two. First of all, the chances of getting mugged in Uruguay or Argentina. Second, the possible complicity of customs officials either in the USA or in Uruguay/Argentina in such muggings (hey there's a guy leaving the airport/arriving with 20k in cash). Or possibly the...

    How Can I Bring Money to Argentina/Uruguay?

    I'm sure this question gets asked a lot, but I'm having a hard time finding good options. I'm looking to transport about $20K from the USA to Uruguay. What's the best way to do this. I must emphasize this is LEGAL, taxed money that's declared to the IRS, and I'm not asking for anything illegal...
