What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT/BIC code is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions globally. SWIFT codes are a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transmit money internationally you almost always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services identify where to send money on a global scale. 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. Similar to how sending a postcard to an incorrect ZIP/postal 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 SWIFT/BIC code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:

AAAA BB CC DDD
