How long does it take to transfer money?

To Bank Australia accounts in Australia

Transfers are processed immediately and are available straight away.

To other banks in Australia

Nowadays, many transfers between Australian banks happen using Osko – you'll see the symbol when you do your transfer. Osko payments typically transfer in less than a few minutes. 

Other payments (not Osko) are generally available on the next business day. Noting that if you make the payment after business hours, it could take an extra day (depending on the other bank’s processing times, too). 

Mobile payments

To get started, add your new Bank Australia card details to the digital wallet on your mobile, smartwatch and other compatible wearables.

International transfers

You can make an international transfer in the app and internet banking, or by calling us or visiting a branch. 

For transfers over $2,000, you must have the Symantec VIP app installed. You will also need to contact us

Bank Australia uses Western Union Business Solutions, a division of The Western Union Company, to receive and send international transfers.

You can deposit cash or cheques at any Bank Australia branch or Post Office using your Visa Debit card.

Or you can mail cheques to:
