    I have arrived recently to Australia and I’m on temporary residence visa. I’m employed on contract basis. Will I qualify for a car loan?

      Hi Sam,

      Unfortunately IMB does not consider temporary residents for loans. You can consider your other options on this page.

      Hope this helps,

    Regarding loan security is the new car being purchased classed as security

    • Staff
      Elizabeth | March 1, 2016

      Hi Michael,

      The new car you purchase will be used as security for the loan. It is for new motor vehicle purchases, as well as demonstrator vehicles if the odometer reading is less than 5,000km.

      I hope this has helped.

      Hi Deborah,

      IMB new car loan can only be secured against a new or demonstration vehicle with an odometer reading less than 5,000km. You may want to consider the IMB secured personal loan on this page instead.

      Hi Gal,

      I can’t recommend a specific lender, but you can find a full list of your used motorbike loan options, as well as the eligibility requirements for the bikes detailed here. When you’re ready to apply for one of the loans just scroll up to the table on that same page and click “Go to Site”.

      I hope this will help.

      Hi Gal,

      Motorcycle loans are similar to car loans in that you are able to choose a secured or unsecured option, depending on whether you want to use your motorcycle as a guarantee. The IMB New Car Loan allows you to use the loan to finance a motorcycle, however the loan can only be secured against a new vehicle or demonstration vehicle with an odometer reading less than 5,000km.

      Hope this has helped,

    I bought a new car less than 2 years ago and it is under Nissan Finance but I want to change to a financier with a more competitive rate. Will I qualify as a customer for the IMB New Car loan?

      Hi Nadia,

      All applications are handled on a case-by-case basis by IMB. However, the minimum eligibility criteria is that you are under the age of 18, an Australian citizen or permanent resident and are not currently bankrupt. You also need to show that you can currently afford the loan and the car will need to meet certain criteria as well.

      I hope this has helped.
