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?
- Go to Home tab
- Tap on 🟣 + Add
- Click on 🟢 Add a Sub-Account
- Select 🟠 Bank Account
- Personalize your sub-account
- Choose Local IBAN (Spanish)
If you’re a bunqer-to-be residing in Spain 🎉
- Go through the verification process explained here
- Go with the verification flow ✅
You can check which identity documents we currently accept here 🔎
And the coolest part about this - the Spanish IBANs are available for all the plans we offer! (including Easy Bank, Easy Money, Easy Green and Pack)
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.
