Could anyone advise me on the options and limits for getting RMB converted back into foreign currency and out of this country?
I heard foreigners can only convert RMB to USD if there is some nonsensical proof of taxes being paid on the currency. Since it's all money that I brought here in the first place and converted to RMB over the last few years (thinking that somehow RMB would be useful for something), there are no taxes to pay on it and this isn't an option.
Western Union only accepts USD. They might be cheaper than wire transfers, but of course foreigners can't buy USD here, right?
Well, presuming I have one or two trusted locals at my disposal, how much currency can they convert per day? per year? What are the limits if I want to have someone here wire the money to a foreign account?
