If anyone knows about it, please share with me please.

Thanks in advance!
Send as much as you like. There is no limit. Over 10K is reported and is sometimes looked at. If you are not money laundering or paying for illicit items, you do not have a problem.

Thank you. My concern is I'm now in Japan and will be back to Australia on 25th April so I can't show my ID etc if my bank need to see it... Do you think I should ask refund and send the money (smaller amount) again?
I'm very worried. I will use that money to stay in aus with my mum for 2 weeks etc

Thanks for your help!!!!

Smaller amounts won't change anything if done close together because that is also flagged if it goes over $10,000 added up. That was done to stop people trying to cheat the system.

Contact the bank tomorrow and ask them. They would probably just put a block on the account/money until you show the ID (if required).

Immigration have nothing to do with it since you have already transferred it. The airport is only concerned with what you are bringing with you in cash.

Don't worry there is nothing to worry about it. The reporting of the money is just to make sure it is not for anything illegal. The bank will just ask a couple of questions and that will be it.

I just checked my bank account and I got the money! Even it's over $10k..
The bank didn't contact me.
But yay I'm relieved now.

Thank you very much

I believe the $10k thing is if you plan to take that with you through customs when entering a country in person. There would be a large amount of $10k+ transactions a day going through bank accounts.

Yes, I think you're confused, Jenny. Glad you got your money okay. For future reference, Immigration (actually Customs) at the airport don't care a single bit about how much money you TRANSFER between bank accounts. They only care about how much CASH you are CARRYING WITH YOU when you arrive. That's all. There's a $10,000 limit for that. Hope that clarifies things for you.
