What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code (also known as 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 Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you transmit money internationally you nearly always need to use a 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 uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Just like sending mail to the wrong ZIP code means it might get lost, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
