What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - or SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you transfer money across international lines you almost always need to use a 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 BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Like sending post to the wrong ZIP code means it could get returned, the same goes for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
