  1. Conditions, fees, charges and foreign currency exchange rates apply. You will need to check with your bank, financial institution or exchange dealer before your transfer.
  2. To withdraw funds from your Australian bank account you need to complete an identity check. You can do this before or after you move to Australia. As soon as you complete an identity check (either in the country you are moving from or in Australia) your account will be fully operational.
