Effective January 1, 2011, customers sending payments to Kuwait will need to quote the IBAN on all payments/transfers regardless of currency. Failure to provide an IBAN may result in that payment being rejected, delayed or incurring additional charges.
For more information on payment formatting, please visit the section titled "Kuwait" in J.P. Morgan's Treasury Services' Global Payment Guide 2013-2014.
