What is a SWIFT code?

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

If you transmit money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT code, as it’s the way banks, financial institutions and money transfer services figure out where the money needs to go. You can think of a BIC code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. A bank on one side of the world finds the right bank on the other side of the world. Like sending post to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it could get lost or returned, the same applies for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

A SWIFT/BIC code can be either 8 or 11 characters long:

AAAA BB CC DDD

More info about SWIFT/BIC codes

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.
