International Transfer Options


Hume Bank, in association with Western Union Business Solutions offers two options to send funds abroad; Telegraphic Transfers and Drafts. Click below to learn more about which option is right for you. 

Telegraphic Transfers (TTs)

A Telegraphic Transfer (also known as a “Wire”) is an electronic transfer of funds directly credited to a beneficiary’s overseas bank account. A choice of more than 130 currencies is offered. 

Why should I use a TT?

In most cases sending a TT in the beneficiary’s currency is usually more cost effective and helps ensure the funds are credited more quickly (normally one to two business days to reach the beneficiary).

What details do I need to send a TT?

You will need to provide full details of the receiver’s bank account, including their IBAN (International Bank Account Number) if they are in Europe.
To comply with Australian Government regulations you must also provide the beneficiary’s full street address. Please note that TT’s are sent via a network of correspondent banks, which sometimes levy a small handling charge on your payment. Any such fees are totally out of Hume Bank and Western Union Business Solutions' control. Given that a network of banks is used to complete your telegraphic transfer, the time it takes for your payment to be credited cannot be guaranteed.

How can I send a TT?

You can send a TT in AUD or foreign currency at any Hume branch, alternatively you can register to send a TT in foreign currency through iBank. 


A Draft is like a bank cheque made out in a foreign currency. It’s another way for you to make payments and settle a transaction overseas, especially if you don’t have the receiver’s electronic bank account details. Drafts can be sent overseas via mail and are available in a wide range of currencies.

Why should I use a draft?

  • Can be enclosed with letters or invoices and forwarded direct to the payee.
  • Should your Draft go missing in transit, upon your notification, Western Union Business Solutions will normally be able to put a stop on it and issue a replacement. Conditions apply – click here for a Drafts Product Disclosure Statement.
  • Offers security around payment – Drafts are a non-negotiable instrument and can only be credited to the payee’s bank account, unless the payee has endorsed the draft.
  • Access to more than 25 currencies. 


What transfer details do I need to supply?

For us to arrange the draft you will need to provide us the details of the person you’re sending the money to (beneficiary).

  • Person’s full name
  • Person’s full street address
  • Any special instructions for the transfer
  • Currency and amount
