What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number 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 transfer money across international lines you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/BIC 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 code a bit like an international postal code. A bank on one side of the world finds the right bank on the other side of the world. 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 look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
