      Hi Tracey,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      NAB only accepts balance transfers from non-NAB credit card or store card accounts that are issued in Australia. These accounts do not include debit cards and must not be in default, that means they cannot be overdue or over limit. Read more about the features of the NAB balance transfer card on this page.

      Cheers,
      Joanne
