Information you’ll need for a bank transfer to South Africa

If you wish to make an overseas payment to a South African bank account, you will need to provide the following details of your recipient and their account:

  • Bank/Branch Number
  • Account Number
  • BIC / SWIFT code

All of these details should be obtained from the recipient before making your international transfer. However, if you are only provided with the account number, then your bank should be able to help you locate their Bank/Branch Number.

If sending money to South Africa from the UK, or any other country that uses the SWIFT system, you will also need to provide a BIC / SWIFT code. For a full guide on BIC (SWIFT) codes, read our in-depth guide.
