It could be a combination between both digits and letters. IBAN stands for International Bank Account Number and consists of a maximum of 34 characters. The IBAN contains all necessary information of the owner of a bank account such as the account number, bank and branch information, and country code. The IBAN system is the standard in all EU countries, but is also used in other countries.
