Hello, digital nomads and expats! Ever wondered about the importance of having a local International Bank Account Number (IBAN)? Let's dive into what it is and why you, as a global citizen, need one.

What is an IBAN?

An IBAN is a unique identifier that helps to process international payments swiftly and accurately. It's like your bank account's international passport, allowing you to send and receive money globally.

Why is a Local IBAN Important for Digital Nomads and Expats?
