What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT/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 - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you send money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT 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 SWIFT code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Just like sending mail to the wrong ZIP code means it could get returned, the same goes for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

A SWIFT/BIC code is either 8 or 11 characters in length:

AAAA BB CC DDD
