What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code - sometimes called a SWIFT number is a standard format to uniquely identify banks and financial institutions across the world. The SWIFT code is a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transfer money internationally you almost 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 uses the code to send the money to the right bank in another country. Similar to how sending a postcard to the wrong ZIP/postal code means it may 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

More info about SWIFT/BIC codes

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