What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - or 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 across international lines you almost always need to use a SWIFT/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 code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Like sending post to the wrong ZIP code means it could get returned, the same applies for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
