What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code - or SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you send money internationally you almost 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 SWIFT/BIC code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT/BIC code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Just like sending mail to an incorrect ZIP code means it might get returned, the same applies for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD

More info about SWIFT/BIC codes

There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for banks who are 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.
