Tips for smooth transactions when sending money overseas:
Provide the full account details of the beneficiary. This will differ depending on the country:
- banks in Europe use a standard International Bank Account Number (IBAN),
- banks in the United States use a Routing Transit Number, and
- British banks use a Sort Code.
- Bank code
- Country code
- Location code
- Branch code
Provide the SWIFT code of the beneficiary bank - either 8 or 11 characters
When sending money overseas using NAB Internet Banking, the relevant SWIFT code will now be automatically generated when you enter a valid International Bank Account Number (IBAN).
This is another way we are making international payments easier with NAB.
To avoid payments being rejected, use the message field to provide a reason for payment
(e.g. Happy Birthday or Invoice 4563)
