Transferring money overseas via NAB

  • Transfer maximum: If you’re using online banking you’ll only be able to transfer funds up to your online banking pay anyone limit. The default is $5000 but you can transfer up to $20,000 if you are registered for SMS security. You may need to increase this if you are making a large transfer but you’ll need to visit a branch.  
  • Speed of transfer: It generally takes 1-3 business days for the funds to hit your recipient's account from the time of transfer, though it can take longer for less frequently traded currencies. Also you will need to be aware of cut off times for processing.
  • Transfer Fees: It is cheaper for you to transfer your money yourself using internet banking which is charged at a flat fee of $22. In person at a branch costs $30. The fee isn’t based on the transfer amount or currency it is charged per transaction.
