What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code (also known as BIC Code) is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions globally. SWIFT codes are a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transfer money internationally 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 uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Just like sending mail to an incorrect ZIP code means it may get lost or returned, the same goes for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for banks who are actively connected to the SWIFT network while passive Codes are used for manual transactions. Passive SWIFT codes will have a 1 as the second digit of the 2 character location code.
