A SWIFT code - also known as a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.
If you transmit money internationally you nearly always need to use a SWIFT 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 code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the other side of the world. Like sending post to an incorrect ZIP/postal code means it could get lost or returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.
A SWIFT/BIC code can be either 8 or 11 characters long:
AAAA BB CC DDD
There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for banks who are actively 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.
