Opening a Bank Account at AIB Campus Branch in WIT

Within 24 hours your account will be activated and you will be provided with your IBAN and Swift code. International transfers can then be made directly into your account thus there is no requirement to bring international cheques or bank drafts, as these can take 6 weeks to clear.
