In order to complete any kind of money transaction you’ll be required to have a routing number, this is like the ID of the bank. Every bank has it own, a 9 digit number. For international transactions you’ll be also required to have a SWIFT code. Not all banks have one, contact your bank customer service in order to find the intermediary bank that can be used on those cases (if international wires are available).
