Receiving money from overseas

If you’re overseas and have money to send home to your TSB account, your Foreign Currency account, or you’re expecting payment from someone in another country, the overseas bank will need a few details from you.   

 

 

 

Things to note

  • You'll need to be a TSB customer to use any of these options. You’ll also need to show us your passport, Drivers Licence, or bank card with your name on it for identification purposes.
  • Overseas banks normally charge a fee for receiving international money transfers. If you want your recipient to receive the exact amount sent, you may like to consider adding this to your payment. You'll need to check with the Beneficiary what this amount may be. 
  • In some situations if the value is under $50, an International Bank Draft might be a better option.
