  • In person payments - Generally within 1-3 business days for a payment made at an HSBC Australia Branch.

    Important: Arrival time of funds in the recipient bank account may be longer depending on the currency you send, correspondent bank clearing times and regulations and controls of the receiving country or region. Incorrect or incomplete recipient details can also result in payment delays, so it is important to check these details before confirming a transfer.

Other International Transfer fees

Correspondent (intermediary) banks may charge a fee to process and clear an international transfer. These fees will vary, depending on the receiving country.

HSBC Australia has no control over the amount charged by correspondent banks. For International Transfers via Online Banking, you can choose to either have the recipient pay the correspondent bank fees by deducting the fees from the transfer amount before payment to the receiving bank, or you can pay HSBC an upfront Correspondent Bank Cover Fee of AUD30 to cover these additional fees.

No correspondent bank fee applies for International Transfers in the local or supported currency to over 50 countries and regions made via Global Money Transfers on the HSBC Australia Mobile Banking App.

When a correspondent bank fee will be applied, "AUD30 transfer fee" will be displayed before you complete the transfer using the app. You will also see the estimated arrival time of the funds with the receiving bank.
