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 Business Identifier Codes - commonly referred to as a BIC.

If you send money internationally 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 BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the 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 go missing, the same thing can apply for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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 institutions 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.
