In case you were wondering...

What is an IBAN?
IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number. IBANs make it easier to send or receive funds from overseas. They don’t replace your sort code and account number; they contain extra characters that help overseas banks identify your account.

What do IBAN numbers look like?
Here’s what an IBAN might look like for a bank account in Turkey:

IBAN (electronic format)
TR521234519876543210123456

IBAN (human-readable format)

What is a SWIFT code?
The SWIFT international payment network is used to send and receive electronic payments (also known as wire payments). It sends payment orders between banks using SWIFT codes, so banks can transfer money quickly, reliably, and securely.

SWIFT code format: AAAA | BB | 11 | 222

AAAA – represents the bank (for example, Barclays is BUKB)

BB – represents the country where the bank is located.

11 – designates location of banks main office.

222 – code for the bank branch.
