What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code (also known as BIC Code) is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions globally. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you transmit money internationally you almost always need to use a 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 code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Like sending post to an incorrect ZIP code means it may get returned, the same goes 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

There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for institutions who are actively 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.
