You can make extra repayments if possible without penalty, a prepayment fee of $175 applies only if you choose a loan term greater than two years and pay your loan off within two years.

For a limited time, you will pay no establishment fee with this loan. You just need to apply as a single applicant before 7th December 2017 to take advantage of this offer.

Existing Westpac customers may be eligible for discounts on the interest rate and those holding existing Student, Youth and Westpac Plus accounts may qualify for discounts.

      Hi Paulo,

      Unfortunately these loans are only available to current residents of Australia. You’ll need to find a lender in Fiji to apply for a loan.

      Sorry I couldn’t be of more assistance,

      Elizabeth
