What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions globally. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you send money internationally you almost always need to use a BIC 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 SWIFT/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 an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it could get lost, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
