If you have to send some money to your friend staying Down Under then you will have to know how to send money abroad. It has been seen that direct wire transfer to an Australian bank is the best way to transfer money to Australia. The procedure of transaction is quite simple and all you have to do is provide the bank with necessary information regarding the bank account of the recipient. Before you send money to your friend in Australia you need to get in touch with him and note down the recipient’s name, Australian bank BSB, bank account number, the SWIFT code of the bank. The SWIFT code is basically a bank identification system that is followed internationally. Your friend can get the code from his Australian bank.
Then you will have to go to your own bank branch and speak to the bank representative about wanting to transfer money to Australia. A form will be given to you by the bank employee and you will have to fill up the form carefully and in details. In the form you will have to mention the information that you have noted down from your friend about his bank. You will also have to mention your personal bank account in the form. Mention the exact amount of money that has to be transferred to Australia. After filling in the form, hand it over to the bank representative. He will give you a receipt against it. You should ask the bank about the time it will take for the money to be transferred.
