What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

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

If you transfer money internationally you almost always need to use a SWIFT/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 SWIFT code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. A bank on one side of the world finds the right bank on the other side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it might get lost or returned, the same applies for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
