What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code (also known as BIC Code) is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions globally. The SWIFT code is a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transfer money internationally you almost always need to use a 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/BIC code a bit like a ZIP/postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT/BIC code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Like sending post to an incorrect ZIP code means it might get returned, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
