Get your International Bank Account Number.

Receiving a transfer? You'll need your IBAN

If you want to receive a transfer into your account, you’ll need to know what your International Bank Account Number is (also known as an 'IBAN').

IBANs are used by banks and other financial institutions worldwide, and make it easier for payments to be processed. You’ll need your IBAN regardless of whether the money is coming from inside Egypt or elsewhere in the world.

Please note: if you have more than 1 account, each of your accounts will have a different IBAN. For example, if you have an EGP current account and a GBP current account, the IBAN will be different for each of them.


Your account number will only be used to generate an IBAN. We won’t share, store or use it for any other purpose. Please remember to keep your personal information safe.

HSBC won’t be held liable for any damage or loss of any nature resulting directly or indirectly from entering an incorrect or invalid account number.

What is an IBAN?

IBAN stands for 'International Bank Account Number'. It's a bank account number that is recognised by banks and other financial institutions around the world.

You'll need to use an IBAN when you make or receive local and international transfers, It's a standardised way of identifying a bank account, which reduces errors and delays in sending international payments.

What transactions you’ll need an IBAN for

If you’re receiving a transfer, whether it’s from an account inside or outside Egypt, you’ll need to know the IBAN for your account.

If you’re making a transfer, whether it’s to an account inside or outside Egypt, you’ll need to know the IBAN for the recipient's account.

The IBAN format

IBANs differ in length, depending on the country or region of origin. That’s because an IBAN simply adds a standard prefix to a person’s domestic account number (also known as their ‘basic bank account number’).

The prefix includes:

  • A country/region code, consisting of 2 letters
  • A 2-digit check number, that changes for each account
  • And a bank code, which varies in length

IBANs in Egypt are 29-digits long.
