Changes to International money transfer fees in Internet Banking

We have reduced the fee for International money transfers sent in a foreign currency. From 1 November, the upfront international money transfer fee will be reduced to $10 per transaction when sending in a foreign currency.

Payments that are sent in Australian Dollars will increase from $22 per transaction to $30 per transaction.

NAB will now absorb overseas bank fees, reducing the charges to your account.
