What is a SWIFT code?

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

If you transfer money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks 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 can use the BIC code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Just like sending mail to an incorrect ZIP code means it may get returned, the same thing can apply for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

A 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 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.
