What is an IBAN number?

IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is only used for:

  • Euro currency payments to Europe and the UK
  • Payments in any currency to Lebanon and Kuwait.

You don't need an IBAN to transfer money to a Westpac account by telegraphic transfer, as IBANs aren't used in Australia. 
If you're transferring money to a Westpac account from overseas by telegraphic transfer, you need to provide:

  • Your combined Westpac BSB and account number (in place of an IBAN number), and
  • The SWIFT code for Westpac, WPACAU2S, which is a globally recognised identifying code of 8-11 characters.
