Hello @Steve1957,

 

We first need to determine if you are sending or receiving money. IBAN numbers are required when sending money to beneficiaries abroad, in this case the IBAN number will be provided directly by the beneficiary, however, when receiving money a Swift code will then have to be provided together with your banking details.

 

The Standard bank swift code is SBZAZAJJ. If a beneficiary is not certain on the IBAN number, he/she can contact their branch to obtain this information. Please visit: http://www.standardbank.co.za/standardbank/Personal/Banking/Foreign-Exchange/Payments-and-transfers/... 

 

Let me know should you need further assistance on this.

 

Regards, 

Boitumelo

Hello @Steve1957,

 

The sender will have to ask their bank for IBAN number and share with you.

Please be advised that when receiving money through an international transfer, the relevant swift code will have to be provided together with your banking details. The Standard bank swift code is SBZAZAJJ.

Hello!

 

I am expecting a payment from the UK but they require my banks address. Do I supply them with the Head Office address in JHB? Or with my branch address? 

 

Thank you :)

And do I require specific routing instructions for a transfer from the UK to SA?

I have made an international transfer into my current account almost 3 weeks ago but it is still not reflecting. Who can I contact or how can I follow up with this? I'm not currently in South Africa to make phone calls.

I will be receiving funds from overseas. I have the Standard bank SWIFT address.

 

1. Do I need to provide the overseas bank with an IBAN number?

 

2. I read that the branch code that should be used is 051001. That is different from my branch code for gateway. Which should I use?

 

3. I read that iIll be contacted to be asked why the money has been sent to me. However, I'll be overseas for 6 months on a different sim card. Will they email me?

 

Thanks,

 

Paul
