International payments - IBAN


IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is a standard format for uniquely identifying an account in a bank in the EU and other Western countries. IBAN does not replace the original account number, but is a supplement used in international contexts.

IBAN facilitates the automatic processing of cross-border payments, because it checks the validity of the sending and receiving banks.

All banks in the EU have adopted IBAN. Furthermore, several countries outside the EU have introduced IBAN, meaning it can also be used for transfers to such countries as the USA or Japan.

You will typically find your IBAN on your account statement; alternatively contact your bank.
IBAN consists of up to 34 alphanumeric characters, and a Danish IBAN might look like this: DK9912344231123456.
​1-2 ​Country Code: DK = Denmark / FO = Faroe Islands / GR = Greenland
​3-4 ​The IBAN checksum
​5-8 ​Bank Identifier
​9-18 ​Account number
The list is updated whenever there are changes.
