Please allow up to two working days for the request to be processed. Once it is processed, you will have access to this function the next time you log on to Internet Banking.

How long will it take for money to reach an international account?

Payments that are confirmed before 5pm AEST, Monday to Friday, will be processed on the same business day. However, the time it takes for the money to be credited to an international account will vary and we cannot indicate a specific timeframe.

How much does it cost to transfer to an international account?

The fee to request a transfer to an international account via Internet Banking is AU$20. In addition, there may be further costs incurred by the intermediary bank and/or overseas bank in the handling of the request. This fee will be debited from the amount sent.
