What is a SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code, also commonly known as a BIC Code, is a standard format to uniquely identify all banks and financial institutions across the world. SWIFT codes are a standard format for BIC - Business Identifier Codes.

If you transfer money internationally you almost always need to use a SWIFT code, as it’s the way banks and money transfer services identify where to send money on a global scale. You can think of a SWIFT/BIC code a bit like a ZIP/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 could go missing, the same applies for your money and the wrong SWIFT code.

What does a 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 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.
