    @ClmOptimist pwede nagawa namin siya for student visa payment. Pero may requirements lang. Better ask your branch about it. Ska may charge siya and medyo mataas ang forex (php-aud) sa mga bangko maliit ang equivalent ng peso mo sa aud.
  • cyborg5cyborg5 AustraliaPosts: 261Member
    @ClmOptimist you will have to use swift for that one. There will be charges of course. And you need to ensure the swift code is correct one.
