There's two ways you can make your international transfer @Yve.

 

If you have access to Bankwest Onine Banking (BOB), then you can make an international payment using these instructions. Before you can make the payment - make sure that you have both Secure Code and your International Transfer Limit set up on your Bankwest accounts.

 

You also need to have the following details:

 

  • the Bank Code and/or the SWIFT/BIC code, name and address of the overseas bank you are transferring to
  • the recipient’s name, address and account number (this is the person receiving the funds)
  • the amount and currency you wish to send

If you are sending money to certain countries (i.e. European countries), you may also need an International Bank Account Number (IBAN). Your beneficiary will need to provide you with their bank's IBAN if applicable.

 

If you don't have access to BOB, or aren't comfortable doing this online - then you can also get assistance with this at your nearest Bankwest Store, or fill in the international payments form and fax this if you're overseas or in a remote location.

 

Remember, fees and charges for sending money apply. Details of these fees can be found in the relevant documents for your account, and on the International Payments page.

Hi @Cg, our most up-to-date International Transfer form has a SWIFT Code field Smiley Happy It does ask for a BSB number, which you would need to obtain from the receiving bank (your Bankwest BSB is 6 digits, and would start with a 30). You can view the International Transfer Form here, under the General Forms heading. If you do need any further assistance with the transfer, our Contact Centre will be able to help you. You can login to Online Banking from a PC and select the "Chat Now" button at the bottom of your screen between 7am – 6pm AWST Monday – Friday, or you can call our Contact Centre on +61 8 9486 4130 from overseas. This is a Reverse Charges Number, however as you would need to contact the International Operator in the country you are in, I am unable to advise if there would be any charges applied by the local or international telephone company for contacting the operator.

That's not an answer if Bankwest can't send a secure code internationally...  you can't set up an international transfer limit without the magic code either

Sorry for any confusion here @Rik, the original post refers to the completion of an IMT Form. You're correct that the SMS Code is required when making an International Transfer within Online Banking, however you won't need it when completing an International Transfer request via the form. Thanks
