We are moving to perth, flights booked on 3 jan!! The issue I have is, I get paid my last months wages from uk whilst I'll be in Oz! Anybody got any ideas on how I can get this money whilst in Oz?

If you go to the section Money & Finance, you'll find many posts on how to transfer money.

 

I have used moneycorp many times and also transferred money between my HSBC in Europe and OZ ;) Both proved to be good.

 

Good luck!

Moneycorp, EX or any money tranfer company!

 

You can use a bank transfer either, or just use ur ATM card in Oz!

 

Money transfer from oz when I have an oz account or do u mean set this up before I go as i wont have an oz account set up so transfer the money too at that stage? sorry for all he questions?

The best way is to prepare the forex account (for example with MoneyCorp) from now. Then, you can add the OZ bank account later to do the transfer and thus its better that you have this ready.

 

Note that you can also open OZ bank accounts from the UK before hand. I opened NAB and HSBC (latter for direct transfer since I have an acc in Europe.)

 

When you arrive in OZ, all you need is to go to the bank and activate the accounts.

 

You can also transfer the money in these accounts before going to OZ, but then you cannot touch the money until you activate the accounts at the bank personally.

 

Note that you can also move the money to the moneycorp account (not sure about others). Then you can move the money to your OZ account when you activate the acc in OZ.

 

Cheers

If you have an Oz account, transfer it to that!

 

If not, keep your UK account open and use your ATM card to withdraw for Oz?

This is expensive (there is a minimum charge per transaction) but at least you have easy access to your funds.
