Hi @Sameerchhatre, can I ask if you have a MasterCard Debit Card for your account?

To access your funds overseas @Sameerchhatre, you'll need to select "credit" when using your card, as "cheque" or "savings" will only be available within Australia. I hope this has asnwered your question Smiley Happy

Can I use the arm of any bank overseas? How much will be the charges? Will I get AUD or the local currency of that country?

Your card should work anywhere that accepts MasterCard @Sameerchhatre. There is a foreign transaction fee of 2.95% of the amount, and the funds should be dispensed in the currency that is local to where you are, but will show in  your statement as Australian dollars. If withdrawing from an ATM there is also an overseas ATM fee of $5.
