Transferring large sums from the U.S. to Israel
« on: September 16, 2019, 10:08:04 PM »
There's a reference in a topic on buying a house in Israel, but it's from 2013. What's the best way to transfer large sums of money from the U.S. to Israel?

Cash?
10k increments with ppl u know.
 Their are swappers that kinda swap money for ppl that need in the US<>ISL dont know of any but ask Israelis that do buisness.... their should be no shortage, usally you can see it on their nose.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

I should trust some unidentified website with my money? I'll do it right after I send my bank info to a Nigerian prince.

To clarify my question, I'm looking to transfer USD to ILS. Enough for a substantial down payment.

not familiar with 'vfexgs' but it shows thats they are in partnership with CFSB.

however i could vote for this website : transferwise, i use it regularly but not for 'large some', only 10k max.

but i worth to take a look.
