Seamless international banking services
beyond borders.

Your global connectivity is as important as your global access to funds.

Whether you are travelling overseas, settling in a new country or investing overseas, we are able to provide comprehensive solutions and services to meet your financial needs, onshore and offshore.


Global Recognition For You And Your Family

When you qualify as a Priority Banking customer in any one country, your status will extend worldwide. This will allow you to enjoy the same privileges for your accounts in other countries. What’s more, your family will also enjoy the same recognition, whether they are living with you at home or overseas.

Designated International Banking Centres Worldwide

Simply present your Priority Banking cards at over 200 designated centres across Asia, Africa and the Middle East to enjoy:

  • Use of exclusive Priority Banking Centre lounge and meeting rooms
  • Local and offshore banking information upon request
  • Preferential foreign currency exchange rates

Pre-Arrival Account Opening

As our Priority Banking customer, your needs are always anticipated. For example, if you’re relocating to another country, you can enjoy the convenience of our Pre-Arrival Account Opening service. Simply give us the details ahead of time and, subject to local regulations, your new accounts will be opened and ready when you arrive.

Global Link – One Click Access To Your Worldwide Accounts

Our Global Link online banking feature instantly allows you to have a consolidated view of all your Standard Chartered Bank accounts as well as transfer funds in different currencies, even if your accounts are in different countries.

Free International Fund Transfers

Enjoy complimentary international fund transfers at our branches and online when transferring money internationally between your Standard Chartered Bank accounts.

Free Worldwide ATM/Debit Card Network

Your Standard Chartered Bank ATM/Debit Card is your passport to financial convenience as you can access your accounts and make cash withdrawals free of charge at
Standard Chartered and Visa/Plus/Cirrus ATMs worldwide.

Emergency Cash Services

Unexpected accidents like losing your wallet can be inconvenient, but not if you are a Priority Banking customer. That’s because with a simple call to your home phone banking centre, we can arrange for emergency cash to be delivered to our designated Priority Banking centres and Travelex outlets in over 500 locations across Asia, US, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Middle East.

Foreign Exchange Discounts At Travelex Worldwide

Present your Priority Banking cards and you will receive special discounts on foreign exchange at Travelex outlets in over 700 locations across 20 countries.
