What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code (also known as BIC Code) 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 transfer money across international lines you nearly always need to use a BIC 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 a ZIP/postal code. Your bank uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Similar to how sending a postcard to the wrong ZIP code means it could get returned, the same goes for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

A BIC/SWIFT code can be either 8 or 11 characters long:

AAAA BB CC DDD
