    I did our first small transfer with moneycorp last week and found the process very efficient and our money arrived in our new Australian bank account on the date scheduled.

    Only criticism is of the internet account adviser, not the money dealer, who had a bit of an attitude.

    Best wishes

    Hi Steve

     

    Pleased to hear the process went smoothly - being a PIO member, you should have benefitted from no transfer fees.

     

    Feel free on private message me and I can explore the other issue you mention.

     

    Kind regards

    Hi Steve, we did our first transfer last week too, like you we tried with a smallish amount and very pleased to see how easy and quickly it all went through - with all the other migrating things I have to worry about at least transferring money wont be one of them now! :-)

    I have an existing Moneycorp account in London paying my pension into my Spanish bank account. When I switch to paying into Aus account do I get free transfer?

    This could be possible and I've asked one of the team to contact you - thanks

     

     

    Hi John

    I'm sure it would help many of us who are considering how we would pay the 2nd VAC on our 143 parent visas if you could confirm on here if it is possible to pay using your services and at what cost (if any).

    Regards

    Steve

    Hi Steve

     

    Would it be a bankers draft involved or a bank to bank international transfer?

     

    Thanks

     

    John

     

     

    Hi John

    From my understanding I believe it has to be a bankers draft.

    Perhaps you could copy your response onto the main parent visa section of the forum as this is being discussed on there also?

    Thanks

    Steve

        Hi all, my query is about transferring money from Dubai to my NAB account. I hear that banks in Oz charge fees for money being transferred from overseas. If that is the case, is it better to use some online exchange / transfer website to transfer money without charges.
        Any information or tips in regards to transferring money from overseas into an Oz bank Account are welcome!

        Hey, my friend and I are both thinking of moving to the bay next year even though parents aren't happy so the won't help us find the information on the bay. We would like to know is it worth it for a year fresh out of school? Can we study there? Is it expensive? Will we find work? Are the bills manageable on a teen wage? Is there financial support there? Is it recommended for two best friends who want out of home?
