I understand declaring the money when you leave the USA, that is not a big deal. Everything will be legal. I just figure if I am going to be in Argentina for 3-6 months $10,000 will cover my expenses (Rent, food, travel, entertainment ect..) especially if I exchange the money (not all at once) for the blue rate on Florida Ave or any other cambio establishment.

You can accomplish pretty near the same exact thing (getting the blue rate) by sending the money to yourself via WU in small amounts as you need it. Think of the commission you pay on each transaction as the cost of insurance against getting robbed of a large sum of money all at once. Also, think of not having to carry around $10K with you everywhere you go, assuming you don't leave the money in your rental, which could be a problem, too.

I am not calling you a fool, but I would like to remind you of the old saying, "A fool and his money are soon parted."

There are so many financial tools available to you today and most of them offer great protections. I urge you to think this one over carefully.

Best of luck!

Hopping on this thread to see if anyone has seen any rumors of when the country may open back up to tourism...I'm hoping to go back to the states to get vaccinated in may and want to be able to come back without marrying someone for residency.
