What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you send money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks, financial institutions and money transfer services identify where to send money on a global scale. You can think of a BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT 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 go missing, the same applies for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

A SWIFT code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:

AAAA BB CC DDD
