Bond repayment by Overseas Telegraphic Transfer (OTT)

OTT is a method of bond repayment available to parties who are overseas and:

  • are unable to deposit a Residential Tenancies Bond Authority (RTBA) cheque into their bank account
  • do not have a bank account in Australia
  • do not have friends or family with an Australian bank account they can use.

A bank fee of $30.00AUD will be deducted from your repayment amount before the transfer. The transfer takes approximately five business days to process.

For advice on how to do an OTT, email the RTBA at or call +61 3 8684 6370 from overseas.
