A fee of 3% of the Australian dollar amount is also charged if your transaction is made in a foreign currency. All of these fees are waived when this account is included as a part of the NAB Private Tailored Package.

How do I apply for the NAB Gold Banking transaction account?

Private Wealth clients who wish to open a NAB Gold Banking transaction account can either contact their NAB banker or visit a branch. If you are not already a Private Wealth client, you will need to meet one of the following conditions in order to qualify:

  • Banking products. You’ll need a combined amount of at least $500,000 invested in one or more NAB banking products.
  • Income. An annual gross income of at least $250,000 for individuals or $350,000 for a family.
  • Assets. $1 million in assets for personal investment.

Once you have become a Private Wealth customer, you’ll need the following documentation when opening the Gold Banking transaction account:

  • Tax file number. Providing NAB with your tax file number (TFN) or TFN exemption code will ensure that you are not charged the highest marginal tax rate on any of your interest earning accounts.
  • Identification. Acceptable forms of identification for opening an account include your driver licence, passport or Medicare card.

The NAB Private Tailored Package comes with an annual fee of $750. This fee is charged when you first enter into the package and on the annual anniversary date every year thereafter. This fee gives you access to the Gold Banking transaction account as well as concessions on some lending products and interest rates.

What's changed about this account?

This account was no longer available for new applications from 23 April 2012. From 10 August 2012, NAB Choice Package customer could not ask for their NAB Gold Banking account to be included as part of their home loan package. However, these changes do not apply to NAB Private Tailored Package customers.

How do the overseas ATM work?

From 10 August 2012, overseas fees apply to standalone NAB Gold Banking accounts including accounts that are linked to the NAB Choice Package. Overseas ATM fees will not apply to NAB Gold Banking accounts that are linked tot he NAB Private Tailored Package.

I would have overseas travel insurance when I buy airfares with gold visa debit card. How about if I would buy all holidays, included accommodation and so on?

The following insurance policies are available on your card:
- NAB Gold Overseas Travel Insurance
- NAB Gold Purchase Protection Insurance
- NAB Gold Extended Warranty Insurance
- NAB Gold Visa Debit Price Protection Insurance
- NAB Gold Visa Debit Interstate Flight Inconvenience Insurance
- NAB Gold Visa Debit Transport Accident Insurance
- NAB Gold Visa Debit Domestic Hotel Burglary Insurance
It is activated when prior to the commencement of your overseas journey,you have paid a minimum of $500 in pre paid overseas transport costs on your eligible card.

For more information, please see this PDS.

Is the gold card open to U18 who travel internationally?

This product is no longer offered on its own. It is bundled with a NAB home loan offer.

With no bank fee options available (ie; PC banking) why would you remain in a situation to be forced into having a minimum in your account to avoid banking fees? Is it because you don’t like the restriction of online banking only? or is there another reason that I don’t see?

The trade-off here is a host of features. And the minimum balance or $10 criteria is a pretty obvious way to pay (although I don’t actually know to what extent NAB makes a profit or loss on this offer) for these extra features.

    As a NAB gold Banking Visa debit card holder, I have informed the bank of a series of fraudulent transactions using my debit card overseas
    ( France & Spain) over past 2 weeks. Do I have any liability for these charges which total over $2000?
    NB We have not been away from Australia for 4 years.

      Hi Roland,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that we are finder.com.au, a financial comparison and information website, not NAB. As such, we can’t speak in behalf of NAB regarding the fraudulent transaction in your account.

      However, your NAB Gold Banking comes with a NAB Defence security feature which gives you the following benefits in case of fraud:

      - NAB will check and monitor your high-risk transactions.
      - NAB will inform you about suspected fraud and investigate it for you.
      - NAB will reimburse you of any amount taken from your account if, despite NAB’s best defences, you are still a victim of fraud.

      To learn more about these benefits, please get in touch with NAB directly.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
