What are the international transfer fees and limits?

By default everyone has a daily International Transfer limit of $0 (it’s to help protect your account). You can increase your limit up to AUD$20,000 at any time in online banking, just select ‘Payments’ and click ‘Payment limits’.

Sometimes overseas transfers touch a few financial institutions along the way who might deduct processing or receiving fees. Unfortunately these are out of our control, but you might like to send a little bit extra to cover any potential charges. For a full list of our fees, see the table below.
