Compare and review 457 visa personal loan rates

Looking to make a major purchase, go on a holiday or perhaps to consolidate your existing debts into one simple regular repayment? When comparing 457 visa personal loans, there are other important things to consider and understand, in addition to the lender’s interest rates.

What type of 457 visa personal loans are on offer?

At a high level, 457 visa personal loans can be split into the following categories:

What’s the difference between secured and unsecured loans?

Secured 457 visa personal loans use an asset you own as collateral. If you are unable to repay the loan, the lender can then repossess and sell the asset to recoup some or all of the losses from the unpaid loan. If you own a car, property, term deposit or some other valuable asset, you will likely be offered a lower interest rate in exchange for offering it as collateral. You could potentially borrow a larger sum of money if you offer security and meet the lending criteria.

Unsecured 457 visa personal loans are loans where you do not put up an asset as collateral. Unsecured loans are higher risk for the lenders, because if you default on the loan, there’s a reduced possibly to recoup the loan. These types of loans come with a higher interest rate, reflecting the greater risk.

What’s the deal with fixed and variable interest rates?

Sometimes, nothing. Though other times, it impacts:

  • the maximum term of the loan;
  • the maximum amount you can borrow;
  • the interest rate; and
  • whether the loan includes a redraw facility or allows you to repay early without incurring a penalty fee.

Fixed interest rates will not change over the life of the loan, which makes it easier to budget. By agreeing to a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan, there is no risk that you will miss payments if the interest rate increased. On the flipside, if there is an interest rate cut in the future, you will miss out on any possible savings. Some lenders may not include a redraw facility on fixed rate loans or will include an early repayment fee.

Variable interest rates may rise and fall throughout the life of your loan. This could potentially mean that you will save money in the future if interest rates fall, but if interest rates rise in the future, it could become difficult to continue to meet the monthly premiums. Variable interest rate 457 visa personal loans tend to be more flexible for payment terms than fixed rate loans, which gives you more options to manage your finances and tailor your payments to work for you.

Do you have a 457 visa personal loans repayment calculator?

Yes. Use the filter to adjust your loan amount and term duration to calculate your approximate monthly repayments. When you apply the filter, you will see a breakdown of your approximate monthly repayments as well as the total amount of interest and fees paid.

Most common minimum loan amounts start from $5,000 with maximum terms up to $100,000. However, most lenders will not provide unsecured 457 visa personal loans beyond $50,000.

Terms range from 6 months to 10 years, with most common terms ranging between 2 and 5 years. You should however check the minimum and maximum term ranges for your preferred lender before applying.

It’s also worth checking to see if there are early repayment fees.

Repayment schedule

Most lenders allow weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayment. However, some peer-to-peer lenders only allow monthly repayments.

Extra repayment or early penalties

All lenders allow you to repay off your 457 visa personal loan early, however – you should check each product for any potential early repayment fees.

Redraw facility

Not all lenders allow you to redraw on your repayments. Some lenders only allow you to redraw on additional repayments you’ve made, whilst other do not allow redraw at all. Often (but not always) you will find fixed 457 visa personal loans will not allow redraw, but offer a lower rate, whilst variable rate 457 visa personal loans may allow you to redraw additional repayments you have made, but may also charge a higher interest rate.
