What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

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

If you transmit money internationally you almost always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks, financial institutions 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 uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Similar to how sending a postcard to the wrong ZIP code means it may get lost, the same goes for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

More info about SWIFT/BIC codes

There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for banks who are 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.

SWIFT code registrations and management are the responsibility of "Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication" (“SWIFT”) which is located in La Hulpe, Belgium.
