Sending money overseas

We can help you send funds overseas simply and securely, to pay for anything from an online purchase of goods and services, to tickets and trips, or even sending money to family or friends.


Need to send money overseas?

Whether it’s online purchases that can’t be made with your credit or debit card, paying for goods and services, sending money to family or friends, or a one-off high value transaction; whatever the reason, if you need to send money overseas, we can help. 


How does it work?

Banks worldwide are set up to be able to securely exchange funds with each other using the same standard documentation and processes. Money can be sent overseas by International money transfer. ASB offers this in a variety of foreign currencies.


International money transfers

The easiest and most secure way to send money overseas is via an electronic transfer of funds called an international money transfer – sometimes known as a wire or telegraphic transfer.

If you bank with ASB, you can complete your international money transfers in FastNet Classic internet banking or FastNet Business internet banking; if you’re not already registered you can find out how to join. Alternatively, you can visit any ASB branch and arrange the transfer over the counter. Find out how to make an international money transfer.


Things to look out for - sanctions

International sanctions can sometimes impact or prevent international money transfers being sent to certain countries. Find out more about these restrictions.
