A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).
If you send money internationally you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services figure out where the money needs to go. You can think of a SWIFT code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the BIC code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it might get lost or returned, the same applies for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.
A SWIFT/BIC code can be either 8 or 11 characters long:
AAAA BB CC DDD
There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for banks who are connected to the SWIFT network while passive Codes are used for manual transactions. Passive SWIFT codes will have a 1 as the second digit of the 2 character location code.
SWIFT code registrations and management are the responsibility of "Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication" (“SWIFT”) which is located in La Hulpe, Belgium.
