Argentina: More controls for buying US dollars

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Argentina is making it harder for people to buy U.S. dollars to pay for travel abroad.

A new rule published Monday says anyone wanting to buy dollars for travel must first prove their money was obtained legally, and provide the tax agency with trip details including why, when and where they are traveling.

... Travel agencies are the latest target since they manage multiple currencies and offer customers black-market rates for their money.
