Please note that due to the current challenge presented by Coronavirus (COVID-19), our partner Travelex has advised that for the interim, they have suspended the repurchasing of foreign currency banknotes and foreign currency cheques.

If you have received a draft or cheque in a foreign currency, Queensland Country, in association with Western Union® Business Solutions will usually be able to convert it into Australian dollars for credit to your account.

Typically, personal, bank, company or government foreign currency cheques can be converted (although money orders are not accepted). However, please note that some conditions do apply. Speak to a branch staff member for further information.

Cheques can be converted from a range of foreign currencies.

Depositing a foreign cheque

Simply take the cheque to your local Queensland Country branch and we will look after the rest.
