Question 2 of 5 about

Making and receiving international payments

How do I send money abroad?

To send money abroad you’ll need these account details to make the payment:

 

  • The full name of the account holder and their bank’s address
  • The bank account number or International Bank Account Number (IBAN)
  • The SWIFT Bank Identifier Code (SWIFTBIC) – this helps us identify which bank to send the payment to

 

 

You can find these details on your original statements, your Online statements, or via Barclays CloudIt.

You can use Online Banking, Telephone Banking or visit a branch to send money abroad.

Also you can make payments to your friends and family in selected countries using Pingit on your mobile.

 

 

  • Online Banking
    1. Log in to Online Banking. Find how out here
    2. Once you’re logged in, click the ‘Move money’ tab
    3. Select ‘International payment’ from the menu
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions and choose the person or organisation you want to make payments to – you’ll need to use PINsentry to authorise the payment

    Your local branch can provide you with a paper draft for you to send by post.
