A SWIFT/BIC code is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.
If you send money internationally you almost always need to use a BIC code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services identify where to send money on a global scale. You can think of a BIC code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Just like sending mail to the wrong ZIP code means it may get lost or returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.
A BIC/SWIFT code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:
AAAA BB CC DDD
There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for financial institutions who are actively 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.
