Simply paste or type the IBAN into the search box and click Search.

You are also able to validate an IBAN using the search bar in the main site navigation menu and selecting IBAN.

Do NOT input the word IBAN as it is not part of the account number e.g. enter only LV36HABA0551001234567 NOT IBAN LV36HABA0551001234567.

If you need an IBAN for your own use, please contact your bank who will provide you with one.

Do not attempt to generate your own IBAN.

The IBAN Search is not designed for and must not be used for the generation of IBANs by bank customers.

If we are unable to identify the issuing bank

Sometimes you may get the message that we are unable to identify an IBAN's issuing bank. If you need to identify the IBAN's issuing bank, you may be able to do this using bank/branch identifier and searching for it using the Institution Search. The bank/branch identifier is usually a national clearing code, in some countries it is the first four letters of a SWIFT/BIC. You will be told what the identifier is when you receive the results of your search.

  • Go to the Institution Search.
  • Paste the bank/branch identifier in the relevant search field (SWIFT/BIC or clearing code).
  • Remove a couple of characters from the end of the bank/branch identifier, add an asterisk to the end of the string of characters..
  • Press search.
  • In some cases, you will get results showing you the institution/s that might have issued the IBAN.
  • If you still get no results, click "Refine Search" and remove another 1 or 2 characters.
