How Banks Evaluate Foreign Investors

Diverse Bank Perspectives:

  • Bank lending policies for non-resident home loans can significantly vary from one financial institution to another.
  • Generally, banks adopt one of three primary stances when considering applications from non-residents:
    • Outright Decline: Some lenders perceive foreign citizens or overseas borrowers as high risks. Alternatively, their systems may not accommodate customers residing outside Australia, leading to an outright denial of such applications.
    • Lending Restrictions Apply: Certain lenders accept Australian expats, temporary residents, and foreign investors. However, they may impose limits on the borrowing amount or request supplementary supporting documentation.
    • Specialized Lending Criteria: A select group of lenders actively seek non-resident clients. They maintain dedicated credit teams to evaluate non-resident applications and operate 24-hour call centers to assist overseas clients. These lenders typically offer more flexibility for Australian citizens living abroad and have accommodating lending policies, particularly for temporary residents, such as 457 visa holders, 309/310 visa holders, and TSS visa holders.
