Can we open a bank account in GBP in Pakistan, I am thinking about taking 14K in GBP with me to Pakistan while flying there.
I would like to buy a house for one of my relatives but if my plan changed I would like to keep my money there instead of bringing back to UK - as I might need it there after an year or so.
Converting currency isn't an option unless I have to do it as currency rate is awful for GBP these days.
- Is it possible to open a GBP bank account in Pakistan ?
- Are there any risks in doing so ?
- All money is legit with bank statements of my pay which is between 35K and 40K per year, am I going to have any trouble at airport as limit is £7K only
