Hi Dec 16, 2009

SWIFT and BIC are basically the same number, so you already have the BIC as they gave you the SWIFT.

IBAN stands for International Bank Account number and is basically a combination of letters and numbers which indicate country, bank and bank account number.

Your bank has to provide the IBAN and I don't see why they mention the intermediary bank as you are having the funds sent to Panama not the US.
