Do you need an IBAN in Portugal?

Yes. If you’re making – or expecting to receive – an international money transfer to a bank account in Portugal, then just a standard bank account number isn’t enough. If you want your money to arrive quickly and safely, you’ll usually need to give the bank a few extra details, such as an IBAN or SWIFT code.

Banks assign IBANs to each of their accounts to make sure that international transfers are processed correctly.

IBANs contain all of the country, bank, and account details you need to send or receive money internationally. This system is used throughout Europe, and also recognised in some areas of the Middle East, North Africa and the Caribbean.

You’ll need a few details to send or receive a transfer – either domestically or internationally.

IBANs (international bank account numbers) identify individual bank accounts. They're issued by many banks in Europe, but banks elsewhere in the world are starting to adopt them as well.

Routing numbers help identify banks when processing domestic ACH payments or wire transfers. But only in the United States. You don't need one to make a payment to your friend in France, for example.

SWIFT codes, like routing numbers, also identify banks and financial institutions. This time for international payments. They're sometimes known as BIC codes.

When sending money internationally, there are a few big things you need to look out for. Banks add hidden fees to the exchange rates they offer, often without even telling their customers. And with each bank sending your money at their own pace, choosing a fast provider can be difficult.

Wise gives you the real, mid-market exchange rate — the same rate you’ll see on Google, in fact. No hidden fees. No surprises. Just a much better deal. And on many popular routes, Wise can send your money within one day, and sometimes within seconds.
