You’ll need to provide the sender with some details.

  2. Your account number and/or an IBAN. Your IBAN can be found on the top right hand corner of both your paper statement and online statement.
  3. Full name
  4. Address
  5. Country
  6.  Bank number / SWIFT ID – for Barclays UK, including Isle of Man and Channel Islands, the SWIFT ID is BARCGB22
  7. Amount you require
  8. Currency in which you would like to receive the money
  9. Agree who is going to pay the fees (There may be a fee to both send and receive funds)

Q1) Is the payment being sent from, Europe, Bahrain, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates?
