How do I receive money from abroad?
Before you can receive an international payment, you'll need to provide the sender with some specific details. Two important numbers you need for international payments are:
- Your International Bank Account Number (IBAN). Get more information about how to find your IBAN.
- The Barclays SWIFTBIC (Bank Identifier Code). For Barclays UK this code is BARCGB22
You will also need to provide:
- Your sort code
- Your full name
- Your address
- The amount and the currency you want to receive the payment in. As there are charges for international payments to the UK, you'll need to agree with the sender who is going to pay them. Get more information on international payment charges
