I just got married and my wife is moving with me to the US. We have been living in Brazil together for 2 years and have some savings. What is the best way to move $10.000 to $15.000 to a US account and get a good exchange rate?
Just a regular bank transfer. Call your US bank and ask for wire transfer instructions. I've transferred money like that from US to Europe and back a few times. Usually fees were in low two digits ($15-$30), but depending on your bank account a sending and receiving side may charge a fee.
