What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - sometimes called 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 - 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 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. Your bank can use the BIC code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Just like sending mail to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it may get lost or returned, the same applies for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

A SWIFT 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 financial institutions who are actively 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.
