Default I need to transfer a large amount of money into my UK bank account

I am English but have been working in Egypt for 3 years now and have enjoyed my stay but want to return back to England to stay with my family. I have a CIB savings account in GBP Sterling with around £160,000 from money from my wages that I haven’t spent (as everything in Egypt is so cheap!) and was wondering if anyone knows what the best way to transfer money to a UK bank account would be as I know there would be problems with the banks thinking this is involved in money laundering. I have been told that I would have to confirm the source of the funds but this shouldn’t be a problem as I am close with the CEO of the business I previously worked for (Juhayna) and am sure he would be able to confirm that the funds are legitimate. Thanks!

If you do internet banking with CIB you should be able to do an electronic transfer to your UK account,you might possibly have to do it on a daily basis as sometimes banks have a daily upper limit and if you exceed that they charge you.I used the CIB bank and always found them very helpful so why not go in and have a word with them and see what they advise.....here is a link to their online services
