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 BIC - Business Identifier Codes.
If you send money internationally you almost always need to use a SWIFT 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/BIC 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 might get lost or returned, the same goes for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.
A SWIFT/BIC code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:
AAAA BB CC DDD
There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for banks 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.
