What you need to send money overseas

You will need to provide us with the full name of your beneficiary and full details of their bank account, including their IBAN3 (International Bank Account Number) if they are in Europe.

To comply with Australian Government regulations, you must provide the beneficiary’s full street address. You also need to provide the beneficiary’s bank code (sort code, SWIFT address or routing number)2

1 Funds are usually received by the beneficiary’s bank in 2 to 3 business days, however, there may be a delay in the beneficiary bank allocating funds to the beneficiary account. There is no delivery guarantee. Some currencies may take longer than others to process.

2 Please note that International Payments are sent via a network of correspondent banks, which sometimes levy a small handling charge on your payment. Any such fees, and payment delays, are out of our control.

3 IBAN is used in some countries to uniquely identify a customer’s bank account. An IBAN is necessary for payments being sent from Australia to an IBAN mandatory country.
