Important information

For a number of years The Royal Bank of Scotland International Limited has offered personal banking under two brands, RBS International and NatWest. Whilst we have maintained banking services for both brands, there has been greater development of the NatWest product suite.

Therefore, the current RBS International personal banking services will draw to a close and all personal customers of RBS International will be transferred to our NatWest brand. There will be no change for our Business, Commercial and Corporate customers.



We are certain you will find NatWest ideally placed to look after your future banking needs but would like to apologise in advance for the inconvenience caused by this change.

What NatWest means for you



NatWest offers access to a wider range of products and services which weren't available to RBS International customers including:

Mobile Banking
Manage your money on the move with the NatWest Mobile Banking app.
Available to NatWest offshore personal account customers with an iPhone or Android phone, Online Banking, a debit card, and a mobile number starting:

  • 07 (Channel Islands, Isle of Man or UK)
  • 0034 (Spain)
  • 00350 (Gibraltar)
  • 00447 (UK phone used overseas)

ibanking for iPad
You can view both your sterling and currency accounts with our iPad app (available on the UK and Spanish App Store). You can also make payments and transfers from your accounts displayed within Online Banking.

Improved Online Banking
You will have access to more advanced internet banking through NatWest Online Banking and NatWest ibanking services.

Extended branch network
Undertake your banking at any of the NatWest branches in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man and use the extensive network of cash machines.

Improved security
Chip & PIN identification will be used in branches when carrying out transactions such as making payments. Not only is this more secure, it is also much quicker.

Will this affect any Business or Commercial accounts I have?

This change will only affect RBS International personal customers. All Business and Commercial customers will remain with RBS International and will therefore be unaffected by this change. Our RBS International branches will continue to provide RBS International counter services as well as NatWest branded services.

No. The RBS International brand will only be available for Business, Commercial and Corporate customers.

Can I still deal with the people that currently look after my accounts?

Yes. The staff in the branches and any Relationship Managers will remain unchanged, so you can deal with the same people after the transfer has been completed.

Will my account number change?

Yes. You will be supplied with a new account number and all the items you need for your banking such as debit cards, cheque books and online banking registration links.

I don't see what benefits there are for me?

We truly believe that the NatWest suite of products and services are better suited to our customers' needs. Through the use of branch, internet and mobile banking it provides greater customer choice on how you wish to bank with us and at a time that suits you.

Can I move early?

Should you wish to take advantage of our NatWest products and services early, please contact us and we'll be happy to help you register for early transfer.

What if I don't want a NatWest Account?

Please contact us if you feel unhappy with the switch to NatWest. We want to explain to all our customers why we are making the change and believe it can benefit you. Of course, you do not have to switch to NatWest and could consider moving to another bank but we would like to reiterate that the same staff who have looked after you within RBS International will remain at your branch and still be there to help.

How do I open up a new account?
