IBAN Validator

IBAN Validator for your web application forms (Angular, React, Vue, ...), comes without any dependencies and can be used as a standalone function in any JS project. It can perform format, digit and length IBAN validations. Currently 108 countries are supported.



npm install ngx-iban-validator --save

Use as a standalone function

You can use validateIBAN function independently from any forms.

Value can be passed as part of object in this case validation flow will be the same as for form validation:

  • If IBAN is valid as result of validation null is returned.

  • If IBAN is invalid and some of the checks fail IBANValidationResult object is returned containing more info about error.

const ibanIsInvalid =
    value: "AL35202111090000000001234567",
  }) !== null;

Value can be passed as a string:

  • For valid and invalid IBAN IBANValidationResult object is returned
const ibanIsInvalid = validateIBAN("AL35202111090000000001234567").ibanInvalid;


const ibanValidator = require("ngx-iban-validator");
const ibanIsInvalid = ibanValidator.validateIBAN(

Error Response

  • If IBAN is valid as result of validation null is returned.

  • If IBAN is invalid and some of the checks fail IBANValidationResult object is returned containing more info about error.

export interface IBANValidationResult {
  ibanInvalid: boolean;
  error: IBANError;

export interface IBANError {
  countryUnsupported: boolean;
  codeLengthInvalid: boolean;
  patternInvalid: boolean;

Error object contains more details about validation error. You can display errors easily as with any other validator.
