What is a SWIFT/BIC 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 Business Identifier Codes (BIC).

If you send money internationally you nearly always need to use a SWIFT/BIC code, as it’s the way banks 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 uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Like sending post to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it may get lost, the same applies for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a SWIFT/BIC look like?

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

AAAA BB CC DDD
