What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code - sometimes called a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transmit money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT 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 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/postal code means it may get returned, the same goes for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

More info about SWIFT/BIC codes

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.

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