Re: Compliance....

Sadly not.

Buying foreign currency is classed as a cash advance as far as credit cards go.

That means you pay a charge on the transaction and the money is subject to interest charges immediately (unlike normal purchases which only accrue interest after the current statement period).

I learned this the hard way.
