Hello,

I have to transfer a small amount of money (around 500 USD) to an account at the Bank of America.

Could you please advise on the cheapest and easiest way to do so from Moscow.

Thanks

Sberbank
Address: 19 Vavilova Ul.
Tel: 957-5862

Spravka needed. (receipt of currency exchanged) they might not need this anymore for amounts under $10,000. phone to check.
Charge: $20 for $500.

Just fill out the application for the transfer.

Must have your Passport, obviously.

If you have a bank account in this country, check with your bank. The banks I've been to charge 1.5% for international wires.

You do not need a spravka for Sberbank. Passport & registration is necessary. Their fee is 3% of amount being transfered. However, be aware that whatever intermediary bank they use will gobble up another $20-30 depending on the amount sent.
