To receive an international money transfer into your NAB account, you need to give the sender these details:

Bank: National Australia Bank


BSB (bank, state, branch) and account number: Refer to your internet banking or account statements. Please check these carefully – in accordance with Australian industry standards, payments made to an account number may be paid to that account whether or not the name of the account matches.

Beneficiary name and address: Your full name (no initials) and street address (cannot be a post office box).

If you want to calculate approximately the transfer in Australian dollars or another currency, see our latest foreign exchange rates.

Transfers to NAB in Australian or overseas currency
Deposited to NAB account Up to $15
Deposited to non-NAB account (NAB acting as intermediary) Up to $30
Transfers of overseas currency received by NAB and transferred to another bank (unconverted)
All customers Up to $35
Documentary payment orders and telegraphic transfers
Payable against documents other than simple receipt 0.2% of remittance amount

Our fee for processing an international money transfer is usually deducted from the amount paid. This fee can differ with the currency of the transfer.

Overseas parties sending payments to us may charge us a commission. We include these commissions in our fee.

In some cases, the sender may tell us to charge our fee to them. Where we do this, we won’t charge you and may charge the sending bank a higher amount.


Australia doesn’t use International Bank Account Numbers (IBANs), instead we use a BIC/SWIFT code.
