How do I receive money from abroad?

In order to receive an international payment, you’ll need to provide the sender with some details.

  • Your International Bank Account Number (IBAN) – this is on your statement, or you can generate the IBAN for your Barclays sterling account using the tool on our international payments page
  • Barclays SWIFTBIC (Bank Identifier Code). For Barclays UK, this code is BARCGB22
  • Your sort code
  • Your full name
  • Your address
  • The amount and the currency you’d like to receive the payment in

As there are charges for international payments to the UK, you should agree with the sender who’s going to pay them.
