What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - or SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions globally. SWIFT codes are 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/BIC code a bit like an international postal code. A bank on one side of the world finds the right bank on the other side of the world. Just like sending mail to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it may get lost, the same applies for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
