IBAN LT refers to Lithuania’s International Bank Account Number code. The format of Lithuania’s IBAN is twenty characters starting with “LT”. This bank account format can be used to send money internationally or within the European Union. 

With this in mind, a money transfer via the SWIFT network or the SEPA payment system from any financial institution will use this international account number. If you want prior validation of the structure of an LT IBAN, you can do this online before completing your banking transaction.

How to Use an IBAN Number?

To use an IBAN number when sending (or receiving) a money transfer, you will follow the same steps that you normally follow when sending (or receiving) money. For example, the party sending the transfer will need the IBAN along with other identifying information about the intended recipient.

The required information will typically include the recipient’s name, address, and account number. Depending on the transfer method you are using, you may also need to provide an email address and phone number.

Send Money Abroad to Other IBAN Countries

Whether you are sending money to a bank account in the same country, or sending money abroad to other IBAN countries, the same process applies. The only variation will come when sending money to SEPA vs SWIFT network countries.
