What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code, also commonly known as a BIC Code, is a standard format to uniquely identify banks, non-financial, and financial institutions across the world. 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 identify where to send money on a global scale. You can think of a SWIFT/BIC code a bit like an international postal code. Your bank can use the SWIFT code to find another bank on the opposite side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it may get lost or returned, the same goes for your money and an incorrect 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

More info about SWIFT/BIC codes

There are 2 types of SWIFT code: live and passive. Live codes are for financial institutions 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.
