What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code - or SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you transfer money internationally you almost always need to use a SWIFT code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services figure out where the money needs to go. You can think of a BIC code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Like sending post to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it may get lost, 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 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.

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