Your international payments questions answered

What are my options for sending money overseas?

You have a couple of options at your disposal when sending money overseas with American Express:

Telegraphic Transfer

A Telegraphic Transfer lets you electronically transfer funds directly into a receiver's overseas bank account.

Foreign Draft

A Foreign Draft is a way of sending funds securely and conveniently overseas without knowing the receiver's bank account details.

To arrange a Foreign Draft or Telegraphic Transfer, give us a call on 1300 651 400 or visit your local Greater Bank branch.

 

How does a Telegraphic Transfer work?

An outgoing Telegraphic Transfer (TT) allows you to electronically send funds directly to the beneficiary’s account. The funds can be sent in over 120 foreign currencies with agreement between the sender and the beneficiary.

How long does a Telegraphic Transfer take?

Telegraphic transfers can take between 2-5 working days to be received by the beneficiary, however, may take longer depending on the country where the funds are being sent.

How much does it cost to send a Telegraphic Transfer?

Fees apply to all Outgoing International Payments. Refer to our Banking Terms and Conditions for full details.

Many financial institutions overseas impose a processing fee when handling Telegraphic Transfers. These fees are set by the processing institution and vary between institutions and countries. As a result, the amount of the payment actually received by the beneficiary may not necessarily be the same as that requested by the customer.

What details will I need?

In order to send a Telegraphic Transfer, you'll need to provide the following details of the intended beneficiary to us:

  • Bank Name
  • Bank Address
  • Account Number
  • SWIFT code or routing number
  • IBAN** (International Bank Account Number)
  • Beneficiary’s name and residential address

** Only required if funds are being sent to a European country, including the UK.
