Expert review

The Bank Australia No Annual Fee Visa card is one of the few cards that offers both $0 annual fee and a low purchase interest rate. This can help you cut credit card costs if you usually carry your balance from month to month. If you do pay your balance in full by the statement due date, you can enjoy even bigger savings with up to 55 interest-free days on purchases.

How to apply

You can apply for the Bank Australia No Annual Fee Visa credit card online. Check if you meet the eligibility requirements and that you have the information you'll need to complete the application before you get started.

Eligibility criteria

  • Income. You must earn a regular income.
  • Credit history. You'll need a good credit score and have maintained a good credit history for the last 5 years.

Card benefits

  • No annual fee. The Bank Australia No Annual Fee Visa Credit Card has an annual fee of $0 p.a., meaning you pay no ongoing fee for this account.
  • Competitive interest rate. This credit card has a variable interest rate of 12.39% p.a. for all transactions, making it easier to calculate possible interest charges and manage your payments.

Rates & fees

  • Cash advance fee. If you use the Bank Australia No Annual Fee Visa to get money from an ATM or for another cash advance transaction, you'll be charged a fee worth $3.50. Cash advances also aren't eligible for any interest-free days, so you'll pay interest from the time the transaction is made.
  • Overseas ATM withdrawal fee. When you use this card to withdraw cash overseas, a fee of $3.50 will apply. This is in addition to the cash advance fee.

    Does the minimum monthly repayment mean that I will have to pay at least $20 every month, even if my account balance is $0?

      Hi Liam,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      If you no longer a balance on your account, you do not need to pay the minimum repayment amount. This only applies if you have a balance/ debt on your Bank Australia No Annual Fee Visa Credit Card.

      I hope this helps.

      Please do not hesitate to reach out again to us.

      Cheers,

      Hi Matt,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      You may be able to request a second card from a different cardholder. Additional cardholders will have their own card PIN. You may contact the bank directly to request this. You may visit them at their office or try calling them.

      Hope this information helps

    Is there a transaction limit on Bank Australia’s Visa Credit Card?

      Hi Ruth,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      There is a daily transaction limit on the Visa Credit Card of Bank Australia. A daily transaction limit of $1,000 for ATM/EFTPOS cash withdrawal applies. For Internet banking, a daily transaction limit of $50,000 applies for both internal transfers and Bill Pay and a daily transaction limit of $10,000 for both external and international transfers. However, you may apply to increase any of these limits at any time.

      I hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
      Jason

      Thanks for your question.

      Are you referring to using a credit card in paying off your credit card account bill with Bank Australia? If so, you will need to contact BA directly to help you in setting up an electronic payment for your account.

    Hi,
    Can you please clarify whether or not there are interest free days with your card. I intend to pay full balance on the due date. The wording in your information is quite confusing as it refers to 55 interest free days and no interest free days.
    Kind regards gail

      There are up to 55 days interest free on purchases available with this credit card.

    Why is this card not listed on your ‘No Annual Fee’ or Low Interest Rate’ card types? The Me Bank MC is also not listed in these and it has one of the lowest rates without being a balance transfer option. For a comparison service, why are you leaving out these products?. Are there any other credit cards that have no annual fee and interest under 15% that are not listed or do I have to got through the card providers one by one?

      Hi Francis,

      Thanks for your question.

      We aim to provide a comprehensive review of credit cards in the Australian market, which is the purpose of our review pages. Unfortunately having each and every credit card in the Australian market, due to the sheer number, isn’t a possibility in our comparison tables, which is why we have all the details available on our credit card review pages and provider pages so you can have all the information at your disposal and use it to come to a decision.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
