adam686 posted Transferring money out of the country (Inheritance) on the Algeria forum on September 22, 2014:
Hello! I'm wondering if anyone has any experience or advice with regards to getting sizable amounts of money out of Algeria and into the US. (let's say the equivalent of $500,000+ USD; or > 50,000,000 Algerian Dinars worth). We inherited this money and would like to be able to access it (we are currently living in the US). I'm very clueless about how the banking system in Algeria works, but from what I gather the infrastructure is very "primitive". So how can one go about converting this money into USD and getting it to a US bank account safely and legally? I noticed that Citibank and HSBC do appear to operate in the country - does anyone have any experience trying to get this done through them? I'm used to the US banking system where you can just show up with cash and make things happen - but it seems like Algerian Dinars are not well-recognized currency outside of the country. So basically: Have a lot of Algerian Dinars in Algeria. Interested in getting them converted to USD and transferring them out of the country (to the US). Any thoughts/suggestions/insights? I'd greatly appreciate any experience which could be shared on the subject! Thank you very, very much for your time! -Adam

I want to turn back to my back home in Algeria, but I have three kids 7,8,9 years old. They speak only English.I am looking for private school that has specialized teacher to integrate my kids.I appreciate
hopeland replied on September 19, 2014 with:
You are not alone. The Algerian public school system recognizes that these children have difficulties and will give students coming home from overseas dispensation from taking exams in languages they don't understand yet. That takes some pressure off of the students while they are struggling to learn Arabic especially. Private schools vary, but I don't think you should expect to find a specialized teacher. Language instruction should start at home with a tutor or in a language school (and immediately!), then continue once the child is in school. For private schools, The Ministry of Education will decide what grade level the child will be placed in, but schools will vary whether the student will stay in their class or attend with lower grades until their language skills improve. This is an very personal choice and really requires someone to be in Algeria visiting schools in order to make the best decision. I hope that helps!
