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.
