What is a BIC code?

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.

What does a SWIFT look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
