    How hard would it be for DR bank to dispense cash from a dollar account?

    I withdraw dollars locally and transfer dollars to the USA from my Banco Popular account, it's easy.

    Transfer cost to the USA is US$55 regardless of amount.

    Side note. I wanted to send some money back to France ( without meaning to, I had 2 diffrent people send me money, and I prefer € or chf to rd pesos.... call me old fasioned ).
    Anyway I figured the easiest way would be a bank transfer. Answer from french bank " sorry we dont accept transfers from that kind of country.....duhhhh ??? And we had warned u beforehand Mr *******, which is actually true.......".
    In the end did it through a swiss bank ( THEY dont mind if u murded ure wife, mother and children for the money...).

    Simple: Use your bank debit card or bank account with these two providers and someone in DR can pick the funds up at select bank or request personal cash delivery by Carbie Express or deposit in their bank account cheaper, yes way cheaper than wire transfer.

    Yes. My US$ account at Banco Popular.

    I email the transfer form to my account manager and she does the rest.

    If it's over US$10,000 you may be required to fill in some paper work about the origin and reason for transfer etc.
