What is a SWIFT/BIC code?

A SWIFT code, also commonly known as a BIC Code, is a standard format to uniquely identify all 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 code, as it’s the way banks 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 opposite side of the world. Similar to how sending a postcard to the wrong ZIP code means it could go missing, the same applies for your money and an incorrect SWIFT code.

What does a BIC look like?

A SWIFT 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 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.

SWIFT code registrations and management are the responsibility of "Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication" (“SWIFT”) which is located in La Hulpe, Belgium.
