An outgoing Telegraphic Transfer (TT) allows you to electronically send funds directly to the beneficiary’s account. The funds can be sent in over 100 foreign currencies with agreement between the sender and the beneficiary.
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.
To arrange an outgoing International Payment, you can attend a branch or ring our Customer Contact Centre on 1300 651 400 during business hours for further information.
Fees apply to all Outgoing International Payments. Refer to our Terms & Conditions (Part 2) 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.
