Information you’ll need for a bank transfer to France
When making an international payment to France, you will need to provide the IBAN (International Bank Account Number) and BIC / SWIFT code of your recipient. The IBAN will inform your bank of the specific account to send the funds to, while the BIC / SWIFT code helps to identify the recipient bank initially.
We’ve created in-depth guides on both IBANs and SWIFT codes to provide all the information you need to know when making an overseas payment to France.
What does a French IBAN look like?
Every French bank account will have an IBAN, a code you will need to make an international payment to France. IBANs in France are 26 characters long (example below), consisting of an ISO Country Code, two IBAN check digits and a Basic Bank Account Number (BBAN). This BBAN is itself made up of a Bank Identifier Code, a Branch Identifier, an Account Number and two BBAN Check Digits. Your bank will require the recipient’s IBAN so that they can identify the account in which to transfer the funds of your overseas payment.
Example of a French IBAN:
FR14 0123 4567 9901 2345 6789 01
