Hi All...
My name is Anna and New member here with a question about money transfer.....
Someone would probably have the answer...
My family member want to transfer money to my Cambodia bank account. But Istanbul bank can’t transfer money to Cambodia because they said “too much money ”..........I currently live in Cambodia

1. Has anyone ever imported items in a box (personal possessions) into Cambodia from Istanbul ???..
What shipping company does freight to Cambodia???...DHL maybe ???
2.What other company or solutions can be used in Istanbul to transfer money ???

So guys, feel free to use all the knowledge, thank you very much.

Too much money??

If it's under 10 thousand there shouldn't be any problems, just make a SWIFT transfer.

Have Turkey imposed capital controls i.e. restrictions on money leaving the country? I know the Turkish Lira was under great pressure vs the USD (and most other major currencies) in the last 2 years so there maybe some restrictions.

If they say it is "too much money" ask them how much is not too much. You might be able to send it in increments. How much are you talking about anyway?

You could send it to my IBAN account in the EU and I can forward it to my Cambodian account. You then can collect it at my house, or I could transfer it to your Cambodian account, for a small fee of course. Let's say 0.5%.

Try to do it through an EU intermediate. They might accept that.

And don't take my comment before seriously.
