I think it comes down to wiring money in and out easier.. instead of 4 % fees at a cueva to bring money in and the worry and trust issues ...many people go to colonia anyway to get the 90 day stamp and if they can forward money to the us dollar account they can pick up 5000 dollars or even 10k at the bank and head back to ba... it depends on the person and the situation,
Merci beaucoup Frenchie for your link and your advise! Sorry for not replying earlier but been a bit busy since the weekend.
I just have one more question though: what if I can't prove monthly income at this point ?
I just want to open the account, put a minimum deposit in it, and in a few months have money wired from the USA to it.
Is that still possible ?
