What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - or SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you transmit 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 an international postal code. Your bank uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Like sending post to an incorrect ZIP code means it might get returned, the same goes 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
