firstly, no one will understand lakhs here , for them it is a hundred thousand.. we transferred from our hdfc a/c to our a/c in AU (westpac), we paid a fee of i think 2000 INR, dont remember exact amount, the exchange rate was high but this was the safest way of transferring the money

none, just a fee. call your bank and ask, each bank has different fee, i think a set amount as norm (by RBI) and a fee that the bank charges, if you are a platinum/classic account holder adn know someone at the bank or have a personal banker, they can get the bank fee waived off but the swift charges can not be waived off, comes to about 1220 INR or so. as long s you are a tax payer, no one will ask you wehre the money came from, you can show it as your saving.

Ratnesh,

You can open an account online. Go into westpac/NAB or commonwealth bank website migrant banking section.
Once you have ur account number and other details u can transfer money from your india account to the Oz account.

Just opened an account for myself but yet to wire money to it. Deep inside I still feel kinda worried if I will get caught in any sort of trouble. It is my hard earned money and I cannot lose it any way. Please help confirm if you have personally done this with Commonwealth Bank i.e. open an account from offshore and transfer money to it and withdraw it after you land in OZ.
