    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

        Hey Everyone,
        I applied for my second year visa on the 19th of Dec and haven't heard anything. My boyfriend and I worked on the same farms for the same time and he got his visa approval back straight away. The only question we answered differently was that I had been outside of the UK for more than 6months. Is it because I out this that it is taking longer?
        We wanted to fly back out on the 23rd of Jan bit worried it will take ages as some people have said they are still waiting 2/3months later? My mum is flying out in the 4th of Feb so I hope I get it!
        Please help with any other similar stories or why you think it is taking so long? I am really stressing!

        Benefits of using a foreign exchange specialist
        By John Kinghorn from moneycorp
        If you’re sending money overseas, you may think using your local bank is the most convenient and efficient option, but working with a currency exchange specialist can give you access to great value rates and services that your bank may not be willing to provide. In addition, a specialist can offer expert guidance to help you navigate the fluctuating currency market.
        As an ex-pat, you could have a number of reasons why you need to convert currency, and accessing great rates and avoiding high fees could have a significant impact on the money you receive for any of the following:
        ·         Buying a home in Australia;
        ·         Converting UK rental income into Australian dollars;
        ·         Repatriating Australian dollars back to the UK;
        ·         Receiving your pension payments;
        ·         Transferring money to friends and family overseas.
        As well as great rates and lower fees than most high street banks, a specialist can also offer a range of product solutions to help you manage all your foreign exchange requirements
        ·         Spot contracts for urgent payments which allow for same-day exchange and transfer;
        ·         Stop-loss orders to prevent against precipitous drops in the exchange rate;
        ·         Rate targeting and tracking to help you make the most of your money ;
        ·         Regular payment plans to fix rates and collect funds from a UK account by direct debit for overseas payments;
        ·         Easy-access online account management, supported by an expert team available on the phone.

        Hello,
        If all goes well, then my family and I are planning to move to Adelaide in the month of Aug - Sept 2018 and have a few concerns / questions on money transfers.
        can one open a bank account from overseas, i.e. before arriving in Adelaide? If so then how do we go about it? (Money transfer from UAE, Qatar) any recommendations on banks? Some with low service charges etc? is the transferred money taxed? If so then what % Appreciate any other additional info that you may think is useful.
         
        Thank you.
