Transfer money to Israel

Find out what exactly you need in order to send money to Israel.


The banking industry in Israel, similar to EU countries, adopted both the International Bank Account Number (IBAN) system as an identification method for bank accounts regarding cross border transactions, and the SWIFT code system to identify the different banks within Israel. Additionally, Israel’s banking money processing systems support another method used for local ILS transfers only. The bank account details, in this method, can be found in full in the IBAN.


To complete an international transaction, with Covercy, to Israel, you will need the following details:

  • SWIFT code – 8 or 11 digits
  • IBAN – 23 digits
  • Full name of account holder


The Israeli IBAN consists of a bank code, a bank branch and an account number, which are all the bank details required for a local ILS bank transfer. Therefore, while creating a transfer, you can also provide us with the details described below.
