What’s a SWIFT Code?

A SWIFT/BIC is an international bank code that’s used to identify individual banks and financial institutions all over the world. The code contains all the information you need to locate a specific bank, right down to the branch, making them important for sending and receiving money internationally.

A SWIFT code is 8-11 characters, formatted like this: AAAABBCCDDD.¹

AAAA: Bank code

BB: Country code

CC: Location code

DDD: Optional branch code

What’s the difference between a SWIFT code, a BIC, an IBAN and a routing number?

A SWIFT or BIC is a global code used to identify a specific bank or financial institution. Meanwhile, an IBAN, or International Bank Account Number, is only used in the EU, Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Hungary, and identifies individual bank accounts, not whole banks. Routing numbers are similar to SWIFT codes, but they only identify banks or financial institutions in the US.

Do SWIFT codes change from branch to branch?
