Things to keep in mind

  • A BankSA Visa Debit Card2 lets you access your own money to make purchases, wherever Visa is accepted. You can also use your Visa Debit Card to withdraw local currency from ATMs (fees apply).1
  • For Credit Cardholders who currently withdraw money in Australia from a linked Savings or Cheque account, it is important to know that this functionality may not be available when using overseas ATMs, including Global ATM Alliance ATMs. To ensure access to a Savings and/or Cheque account when overseas please speak to us about obtaining a Visa Debit Card for these accounts.
  • A 3% BankSA Foreign Transaction Fee applies to overseas debit or credit card withdrawals. A 2% cash advance fee applies to credit card withdrawals where the "Credit" option is selected.
  • The daily withdrawal limit for a BankSA Visa Debit Card is A$1000. This limit can be increased to a maximum of $2,000 by visiting a BankSA branch or calling Telephone Banking on 13 33 22.
  • Some overseas banks may charge an ATM fee for withdrawals. This will be brought to your attention before you proceed with the transaction and can be avoided by using one of our Global ATM Alliance network ATMs.
  • You may wish to carry some foreign cash3 to make it easier to pay for incidental expenses like fares and tips.
