Aussie & NZ Citizens

Australian & NZ citizens living outside of Aus can still easily obtain financing-but there’s a few things you need to be aware of:

    • 2021 banking policies have significantly changed for Aussie expats but the good news is several Aussie banks are still lending

    • Banks have varying assessment policies for Australian & NZ Citizens

    • Singapore based Australian banks are no longer lending

  • In short, loans that can be easily approved at one bank may not meet servicing criteria at another

    • Banks will need to see evidence of your Australian PR  visa is indefinite with no restrictions
