ANZ's exchange rates

ANZ offers real-time exchange rates when you send money overseas using ANZ Internet Banking, meaning the exchange rates are constantly updated. ANZ does charge a margin on top of the interbank exchange rate (known as the real exchange rate), with this margin varying between currencies.

The table below demonstrates an example of the exchange rates offered by ANZ for AUD$1, compared to the interbank exchange rate across a range of the most popular currencies. As you can see from the below exchange rates, ANZ has applied a margin of about 2% on top of the interbank exchange rate. This table serves as an example of the rates offered by ANZ only, and you should always source a quote for the current exchange rates offered by the bank and the full list of currencies available.

    I want to do an international transfer from my ANZ AUD account to Thai Bank account.
    Should I be sending in AUD or Thai Baht for the best conversion rate?

    • finder Customer Care
      CharisseNovember 18, 2018Staff

      Hi PJ,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      Generally, you will have better chances of getting the best conversion rate if you do the conversion (AUD to THB) prior to sending as this will allow you to lock in the conversion rate when the rate is good.

      If you choose to send the money in AUD, conversion rates to THB will be subject to change and will depend on the current conversion rate the Thai bank is using.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Charisse

    Hi,

    Can I have the SWIFT code for ANZ Bank Box Hill Branch?

    • Default Gravatar
      LiezlApril 26, 2017

      Hi Warren,

      Thanks for your question.

      ANZ Australia’s SWIFT/BIC code is ANZBAU3MXXX which can be used for their branches, too.

      Kindly note that 3 letters or digits for branch code are optional (‘XXX’ for primary office). Moreover, where an 8-digit code is given, it may be assumed that it refers to the primary office.

      I hope this has helped.

      Best regards,
      ​Liezl

    Hi Jenny,

    Thanks for your question.

    Yes they will need a SWIFT code. You can find SWIFT codes for any of the international money transfer services we feature on finder.com.au by click on any providers under ‘Services’ on the bottom left hand side of our International Money Transfer guide.

    Other information required by ANZ:
    – Your ANZ branch name, address, account name, full account number.

    Hope this has helped.

      Hi Ray,

      Thanks for your question.

      The limit will depend on your provider so it is best to check with them directly. If you are shopping around for services, our Money Transfer Finder page may help.

      Hi Ray,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that if it’s income that you’re transferring back into Australia, you will need to declare this in your tax return with the ATO.

      Due to regulations, all transactions over the size of $10K AUD are recorded.

      Hope this helps.

      We are a comparison website and as such provide general advice only. The page you have commented on refers to international money transfers, however for your project, it may be best to speak to someone in ICT.

      Hi Amanda,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you’re using ANZ to complete an international money transfer, most transfers take up to 2 working days provided all the correct information has been used. You can also take a look at our Money Transfer Finder to see a list of services and check under “transfer speed” to view how long the transfer takes.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi i have transferred 15,500,000 usd into my account from overseas how long will it take with ANZ bank and do i need to tell my bank i am receiving that amount from south africa

    • finder Customer Care
      ShirleyMay 16, 2016Staff

      Hi Darren,

      Thanks for your question.

      It will usually reach the receiver’s account within 2 working days assuming everything goes well.

      Letting your recipient bank know is optional, though it may be best since it’s such a large transfer amount.

      Hope this helps.

    If i my friend send me money using anz here in our phil bank like banco de oro bank. How can i know that the money is transferred and how can i claim it? Is this like withdrawing money using an atm machine?

    • finder Customer Care
      ShirleyMarch 15, 2016Staff

      Hi Nervin,

      Thanks for your question. I’m assuming that your friend is using ANZ and transferring money to the Philippines.

      The transfer usually takes 2 business days – your friend can also get in touch with ANZ directly to enquire if it’s been processed. The money goes directly into your bank account so you can withdraw it from an ATM.
