What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT/BIC code is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions globally. The SWIFT code is a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transfer money internationally you nearly 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 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 the wrong ZIP code means it could go missing, the same applies for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT look like?

A BIC/SWIFT 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 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.
