The NAB Low Fee Card has simple credit card features and can be added to digital wallets including Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay. It also offers complimentary purchase protection. If your goal is to pay off existing credit card debt, it currently offers 0% p.a. interest on balance transfers for the first 12 months, with a one-time 3% balance transfer fee. This makes it suited to people who want to switch to this card and only have a small amount of debt they can pay off within the 12-month introductory period.

Hi Robbie, We can’t provide personal financial advice, your best bet would be to contact NAB directly about your credit card account: you can reach them on 13 22 65.

Hi Dhiraj,


Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. :)


Yes, you can do a balance transfer from BankSA even if you are a temporary Australian resident provided that you meet the eligibility requirements of your chosen bank.


You can also use our comparison table to help you compare credit cards for temporary residents. You can press the name of the card or the “More info” link to get more information about the card’s balance transfer rate and conditions. When you are ready, you may then click on the “Go to site” button and you will be redirected to the bank’s website where you can proceed with the application or get in touch with their representatives for further inquiries you may have.


Before applying, please ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and read through the details of the needed requirements as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions when comparing your options before making a decision on whether it is right for you. You can also contact the provider if you have specific questions.


I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out again.


Have a wonderful day!


Cheers,

Joshua

Hi Marshel,


Thanks for your question.


Yes, you can use NAB Low Fee Card overseas where VISA is accepted. However, please note that it charges foreign currency conversion fee as well as overseas ATM balance check and withdrawal fees.
