Receiving money in local currency from employer

I am going to travel to New Zealand for working holiday. I opened an account just few days ago.
Is it possible for an employer to transfer NZD to my account without any fees? So that I do not have to open a bank account in NZ.

I already add an account in NZD. If an employer sends money to my account it will appear in NZD?

Thank you guys for helping me.

Hey @chrsbrk :slight_smile:

This answer comes a little late but, as far as I’m informed, you can, for now, only receive third-party bank transfer to your EUR IBAN or GBP local account. :money_with_wings:

For the rest of the cases, there’s a pooled bank account which will only accept payments from you :slight_smile:

You can also convince your employer about the benefits of :r:, if you’re feeling adventurous, and get your money instantly through :r: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


It’s never too late. :relieved:

Thank you for the answer - helped me a lot. :slight_smile:
