Transactions and fees that require a currency conversion are calculated using MasterCard foreign exchange rates and are subject to NAB’s Foreign Currency Conversion fee.

2 Loading and reloading your card: Load and reload limits apply. Funds loaded via NAB Internet Banking will be available immediately. The foreign exchange rate quoted is NAB’s Currency-to-Currency foreign exchange rate. Allow 2-3 Australian business days for funds reloaded via BPAY to appear on your card. The exchange rate that’ll be applied is the rate at the time of processing, not when the BPAY transaction is initiated. Reloads are calculated using the NAB Currency-to-Currency foreign exchange rate.
