Frequently Asked Questions
Can I open a US dollar account in Australia?
If you use one of the traditional banks, you may have the option of opening a US dollar account in Australia. But many accounts come with proof of address requirements, minimum opening balances and take a clip on currency exchange.
With Airwallex, you can open a US dollar bank account in just minutes, and you won’t need a US address to do so.
How does a USD account work?
Your Airwallex USD account is much like a traditional bank account. You can send, hold and receive USD and view your account details and currency balance. The benefit of having an Airwallex USD account is that it won’t force you to convert currency unnecessarily.
When you do need to convert or withdraw funds, you’ll only pay a small 0.3% or 0.6% FX margin above the interbank rate.
