International transfer

I am a NZ citizen who lived and worked in WA for nearly 40 years.

Now I have retired and returned to NZ to live and be near family.

I wish to transfer my lump sum super from my Bankwest account to my NZ bank account to purchase property.

I have filled in an international transfer form but received a response that I do not qualify for RTGS and should go to my local Bankwest. I tried to resubmit with an explanation but I it bounced back each time.

I thought it must be because my account still had my WA address so yesterday I changed that by phone,  downloaded and filled in a new form and sent it to IMT.retail etc. So frustrated and disappointed this morning to have it bounce back again! !

I have to pay the outstanding amount by end of November so I am getting very anxious. 

Any suggestions??
