A foreigner has $11,000 and they are flying to the US. They claim it on FinCen 105 and the CBP Form 6059-B. They show the forms to the CBP agent. What happens next?
The purpose is a long family vacation(4 months) 2 US citizens (husband and son) and 1 Chinese citizen (wife).
I am aware that money divided among the 3 people totaling 10,000 or more still requires the same FinCen 105 for. I am also aware that it is expected that tourists are able to prove that the have enough money to support themselves upon arrival. All three of us do not have a US bank account to wire money.
A follow up question for the comments - Are their anyways to make an account while abroad before flying so that some of the funds can be wired to the US account in advance?
