Question 1 of 8 about Making and receiving international payments
How do I receive money from abroad?
Before you can receive an international payment, you'll need to give the sender 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 IBAN tool
- Barclays SWIFT code. For Barclays UK, this code is BUKBGB22
- Your sort code and account number – unless you’ve provided your IBAN
- Your full name
- Your address
- The amount and the currency you’d like to receive the payment in
If the payment is coming from outside the EEA, you'll also need to agree with the sender who's going to pay the charges.
SEPA credit transfer
To receive a SEPA credit transfer, you'll need to give the sender an IBAN. You can find this on your statement, or generate an IBAN using our IBAN tool.
Payments in US dollars
You might be asked to provide the details of who Barclays UK banks with in the USA, including the ABA code 026002574. This is equivalent to a UK sort code and is also known as the Fed Wire number. Barclays Bank UK’s PLC USD account is held with Barclays Bank PLC, New York.
