Question 1 of 5 about

Making and receiving international payments

How do I receive money from abroad?

Before you can receive an international payment, you'll need to provide the sender with some details, including:

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

Remember, you'll also need to agree with the sender who is going to pay the charges.

If you wish to receive a SEPA credit transfer, you'll need to provide the sender with an IBAN and SWIFTBIC.
