Hey bunqers 🌈
Fully integrate bunq with your local life in Spain, thanks to Spanish IBANs.
What’s a Spanish IBAN?
bunq is a European bank based in the Netherlands meaning that your IBANs are located in the Netherlands. You can recognize this when you see the NL in your IBANs. If you’re a Spanish bunqer-to-be, all your IBANs since the opening of your new bunq account will have a Spanish IBAN - provided you’re a Spanish resident.🍹
This is our latest IBAN milestone that we’re more than happy to share with you! It lets you bank like a local, from anywhere in Spain. ✨
How can I get a Spanish IBAN as a Spanish resident?
You can get your Spanish IBAN by clicking on the Events tab on your Home screen. After you click it, the event will take you trough the verification flow required for you to get your first Spanish IBAN.
By following this simple process:
- Profile tab
- Personal Information
- View Current profile
- Get a Local IBAN 🇪🇸
If you’re a verified Spanish bunqer 🌈
- Go to Home
- Tap on + Add accounts
- Select Sub-account
If you’re a bunqer-to-be residing in Spain 🎉
- Go through the verification process explained here
- Go with the verification flow ✅
But I have Dutch IBANs and now I want a Spanish one, what do I do?
You’ll be able to get your Spanish IBAN even if you had Dutch IBANs before that. Just keep in mind that if you choose to go for a Spanish IBAN all your new sub-accounts will receive Spanish IBANs automatically. And your Dutch IBANs? You’re free to keep and use them as usual! 💸
After you confirm your choice to stick to Spanish IBANs, you’ll have to go through the verification process once again as shown right here.
If you have a Savings goal or a Joint account with a Dutch IBAN prior your transition to the Spanish branch, the IBAN will remain with its original Dutch branch number. In case you want to have Savings goal or a Joint account with Spanish IBAN, you should open a new account by following the regular process.
What if I'm not a Spanish resident but I still want a Spanish IBAN?
No need to worry - Local IBANs are here, and they’re the perfect fit for your international lifestyle. Easily add and use IBANs from multiple European countries - all in your bunq app. Easy Money Personal and Easy Green Personal users can start exploring this feature.
