What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

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

If you send money internationally you nearly 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 BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT 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 could get lost or returned, the same goes for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

A SWIFT/BIC code can be either 8 or 11 characters long:

AAAA BB CC DDD
