    for whatever reason? And...it's not illegal - once you report everything.

  2. It's not a would-question, you SHOULD open an offshore bank account, as a currency hedge and deposit insurance, keep some small nest egg for emergencies like USD 100-200K.
    Be aware that these days is very very difficult to do it for US citizens and residents due to IRS regulations which amount to unofficial restrictions on capital movements.
