What is a BIC code?

A SWIFT/BIC code is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you transfer money internationally you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks 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 can use the SWIFT/BIC code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to the wrong ZIP code means it might get lost, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

A BIC/SWIFT code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:

AAAA BB CC DDD

More info about SWIFT/BIC codes

There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for financial 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.
