What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code (also known as BIC Code) is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you send money across international lines you nearly always need to use a 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 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 an incorrect ZIP code means it could go missing, the same goes for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

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