      New Forum Upgrade   03/24/2017

      On behalf of the admin and moderators of the forum we would like to thank you for your patience during the forum upgrade.  We understand that members don't like change, but unfortunately we had to move with the times. There are lots of exciting changes and features to be made in the coming weeks, however, our priority was to get you all back online as quickly as possible. There is a thread in Forum Q & A (accessible via the link below) if there are any urgent issues please post them in there then we can monitor one thread instead of missing posts. Thank you once again The Pom Queen and Cerberus1 ADMIN

Pick of the week FAQ's

3 posts in this topic

Hi PIO Members,

 

We know you’ve got a lot to manage when moving to a new country. So whether you’re moving to Australia to live, work, study or start a business, let NAB sort your banking before you’ve even stepped off the plane. NAB, a part of the National Australia Bank Group, has a dedicated team that helps migrants, expatriates and international students from over 100 different countries each month to open bank accounts quickly and easily online up to 12 months before arrival.

 

Each week I will upload one FAQ........here goes!

 

Why does NAB offer two account types?

• The NAB Classic Banking account is an every day transaction account

• The NAB iSaver account is a savings account that pays a competitive interest rate

The iSaver account must be opened with a NAB Classic Banking account at all times. To check the current NAB iSaver interest rates, go to: www.nab.com.au/personal/accounts/savings-accounts/nab-isaver

 

*Please note that your account can receive funds, however withdrawals can not be made until you arrive and pass the necessary

identification requirements.

Hi just a question, I have opened an austrailian account from the UK with yourselves and Iam about to transfer a large some of money. Just in a little panic as I am a worrier! We have a joint account however let's say for some reason one of us could not come out maybe due to ill health this would mean the other could not get the money is this right? We plan on coming together however you never know! Also what if something was to happen to one of us would that mean that the money would be stuck in oz? I know these are silly questions but I work in an intensive care unit and know how quickly life's can change!

Thanks

Hi Loulou,

Thank you for your message.

If you haven’t send funds already you could look to each openindividual accounts. Funds could then be split between the two individualaccounts and transferred into a joint account at a later stage.

Otherwise worst case one of you wasn’t able head out due toill health, please make contact with us and we discuss how we can assist.

Kind Regards

Micaela from NAB
