What is an IBAN?

An IBAN is an internationally recognised account number system which can unambiguously identify the recipient’s account number. The IBAN account number  includes the recipient bank’s country code, recipient account number and check digits which confirm that the account number is correct before the payment is sent. The length of an IBAN is different in different countries. A Latvian IBAN is 21 characters long, and begins with LV. See below for a table of all the countries which use IBAN numbers and the length of their IBAN numbers.
