The basics

To receive an international transfer into your NAB account, you’ll need to give the sender the following details:

  • Bank: National Australia Bank
  • BIC/SWIFT code: NATAAU3303M
  • BSB (bank, state, branch) and account number: Refer to your internet banking or account statements
  • Beneficiary name and address: Your full name (no initials) and street address (cannot be a post office box).

You can calculate the approximate transfer in Australian dollars (AUD) (or another currency) using our latest foreign exchange rates.

A few things to remember

  • Australian banks don't use IBANs.
  • Foreign Currency Accounts don't require a BSB. If the sender requests one the BSB 082-039 can be used.
  • Please check your BSB and account numbers carefully. Payments made to an account number may still be paid (even if the name doesn’t match the account).

Fees for receiving international transfers

Deposited to NAB account Up to $15

Reasons you may be charged a fee

  • When we convert an international transfer into AUD. This fee can differ depending on the currency of the transfer.
  • Overseas parties sending the payments may charge us a commission. If this happens we’ll include it in our fee.

Sometimes the sender may tell us to charge our fee to them. If this happens, we won’t charge you and may charge the sending bank a higher amount.
