Can I use IBAN instead of account number?
The number starts with a two-digit country code, then two numbers, followed by several more alphanumeric characters. Note that an IBAN does not replace a bank’s own account numbering, as it’s only meant to provide additional information that helps in identifying overseas payments.
Can I use IBAN instead of Swift code?
IBAN and SWIFT are the two common standards for sending international bank wires. Both can be used to identify a recipient’s bank, so that other parties can send money to them, even across borders. IBAN is the leading standard within Europe and neighboring countries, although the SWIFT system extends worldwide.
