    I know what you guys did for funds transfer ? Are you taking cash, DD or used the Wire Transfer into New Comer account ? I am in a bit of a bind due to exchange rate fluctuations and shortage of USD in the market and need to know what best course of action to be taken
  7. Hello Guys,

    I am facing some difficulties in my funds' transfer. Unfortunately, I chose the worst time to leave Pakistan due to current fiscal conditions.

    1. Banks are not allowed to send a remittance from PKR to CAD in your CAD account.
    2. In order to send CAD to New Commer Scotia Bank A/C I need to take the FCY which involves buying USD from open market and depositing then in FCY account then for transfer to newcomer account. I would take a huge loss due to USD rates nowadays.
    3. I have a SCB FCY a/c but not enough dollars in that so I have to buy $ at horrendous rates and then get them deposited in FCY a/c wait for 8 days clearance period (Will be doing it through check), then send it through Wire Transfer to CAD a/c and lose on conversion rate as well. I asked them for a USD 15,000 transfer and they told me it can be done.
    4. Bank can also make a CAD DD against my USD a/c by applying conversion (SCB has operations in Canada so they will make their own)
    5. Another option is NBP Exchange which will make CAD DD through their partner bank (Bank of Montreal). Which can be deposited in CAD account upon my arrival there. However, the clearance time for a DD is one month. However, the branch on Shahrah-e-Faisal told me that their limit has expired and they can't make the draft before 1st June.
    With the dollar short in the market and extreme hike in prices, I am worried which route to take to avoid losing heavier amount in all these currencies conversion. Plus there is the added danger of GoP imposing restrictions on the amount which can be taken out in cash through airports ($3000 is the proposed restriction).

    Can anyone guide me a better way? My total transfer is CAD 28,000 out of which I plan to take at least CAD 5,000 in Cash. Please advise reliable currency exchanges in Khi which would make CAD DDs.

    Would appreciate your feedback.

  8. You can carry $5000 cash and get the account statement from the bank signed and stamp, that should be sufficient. I did the same and guess what no one asked me at immigration about the money.

  14. Hi guys,
    New to all this.

    So I happen to be ACCA affiliate with a BSc Hon. Would both qualifications carry score in EE? I calculated my CRS which came out to be 446 with 1 year of practical experince including a couple of full-time internships. I hear I should go for CPA, but thay would require getting ACCA membership which doesn't happen for another couple of years for me. Has anyone of you gone through the same, with the above mentioned qualifications and experience? Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
