What are IBAN and SWIFT codes?
IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number. IBANs were introduced to standardise the identification of bank accounts internationally. Your existing bank sort code and account numbers haven't been replaced - your IBAN simply has more characters added. You can find your relevant IBAN on your account statement.
A SWIFT code (or SWIFTBIC, as it’s sometimes written) is a bank identifier code. Barclays UK's is BARCGB22.
An IBAN and SWIFTBIC is required on all international payments to and from Europe. To find out more, visit our international payments homepage.
