A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions globally. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).
If you transmit money internationally you nearly always need to use a 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 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/postal code means it could get lost or returned, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.
A SWIFT/BIC code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:
AAAA BB CC DDD
There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for institutions who are 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.
