This summer, I will be visiting a university in California for 4 months. I will be lowly paid by the university (<2k$/month). Also, some other income from Switzerland will arrive to my normal Swiss bank accounts.
- The pay from US might not be enough to cover entirely my month expenses there. Therefore, I might need to transfer some CHF to $.
- I have already set up a Revolut and Transferwise accounts, but I have never topped them up. (but not physical cards, but they cost 7.- each)
- I have Neon and a Zak bank accounts.
What would you do?
I don’t know if it’s worth to open an US bank account to receive the US salary and close it when I leave. Should I entirely rely on Revolut Neon or whatever?
Thanks for your help!
