What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all 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 almost 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 BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to an incorrect ZIP code means it may go missing, the same goes for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

  • AAAA: 4 character bank code.Just letters, no numbers.
