What is an IBAN?
- IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number
When you transfer money overseas, some countries require you to use an IBAN.
An IBAN starts with a two letter country code and will contain between 15 and 34 letters and numbers. The length of an IBAN will differ depending on the country of the recipient. The IBAN should be presented as a continuous string of alphanumeric characters with no spaces (eg. GB29NWBK60161331926819).
ANZ does not have the authority to change an IBAN, so please make sure you have the right details before sending your payment.
Australia does not use IBANs to receive payments and instead use BSB and account numbers.
How to get an IBAN for your payment
You can contact the person or organisation you’d like to transfer to, contact their bank or refer to their bank’s website.
