International Payments

Overseas banks may impose fees and charges or convert the currency of the payment. Westpac might not have any control over the fees, charges or foreign currency conversions imposed by these institutions. Any overseas financial institution handling charges will by default be borne by the recipient of the International Payment and deducted from the payment amount, unless otherwise organised. It is possible that the overseas bank could convert the currency of the payment at an unfavourable exchange rate. You should inform the beneficiary that, if this occurs, they should consider rejecting the payment immediately so the payment can be unwound at the prevailing exchange rate.

If you do not want the currency to be converted, please insert the words “Do Not Convert” in the description details free text box when you are making an international payment and we will on-forward this instruction.

Other Banks Fees

In addition to the fees charged by Westpac [and any conversion of proceeds], an international payment may also result in additional fees and charges being deducted by:

  • one or more other overseas banks involved in the international payment (an "Other Banks Fee"); and/or
  • the payment recipient's bank.

This could result in the recipient receiving less than the amount you originally sent.  An estimate of Sending Money Overseas -  Other Banks Fees can be found here, based on the currency of the payment and the country/region the payment is being sent to.
