Depositing foreign cheques or bank drafts

A foreign cheque or bank draft will be sent to you in the post. Deposit it at your local Kiwibank — the money will be available for use in 20-30 business days.

Receiving an international money transfer

Money can be deposited directly into your transaction account or foreign currency account from another bank just about anywhere in the world.
