What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT/BIC code is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions globally. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you send money internationally you nearly always need to use a SWIFT 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 BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the BIC code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Just like sending mail to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it could get lost or returned, the same applies for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
