What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code - or SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions globally. The SWIFT code is a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you send money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/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 SWIFT code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to an incorrect ZIP code means it may go missing, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
