What is a SWIFT code?

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

If you send money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks, financial institutions 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. 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 code means it might go missing, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
