International Students: How to pay your fees
Protection of International Student Fees
WelTec, as a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, is required to have a fee protection policy to safeguard all fees paid by international students. WelTec is governed by the New Zealand Crown Entities Act, the Education Act, and WelTec Council regulations in regard to student fees. An individual fee account is maintained for each enrolled student.
There are two ways to pay fees at WelTec: by International Funds Transfer, or by Bank Transfer.
1. International Funds Transfer (preferred method)
At WelTec we use the Western Union Business Solutions payment portal for making your international tuition fee payments. We prefer this system because it’s a faster, more reliable way for you to pay. You can pay from your bank account with a telegraphic transfer, or domestic transfer.

5 Reasons to use Western Union Business Solutions payment portal
- It’s easy to use and you can make your payment faster and receive your Confirmation of Enrolment (eCOE) sooner.
- Save money by choosing a telegraphic transfer from your bank. There are no transfer charges from Western Union Business Solutions for this type of payment.
- You can use your own currency and still be sure that your full payment amount will be made in New Zealand Dollars.
- Once you make the payment, the exchange rate is locked in for 72 hours, making sure that the full amount is paid.
- You get peace of mind, knowing that your payment will arrive in full, on time, without any extra charges or delays.
