What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is 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 SWIFT 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 BIC code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Just like sending mail to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it could get returned, the same goes for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
