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 transmit 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/BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT/BIC code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Like sending post to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it might get lost or returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.
A BIC/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 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.
