What is SWIFT Code?
SWIFT/BIC codes are used to identify specific banks and branches in international money transfers, making sure your money gets to the right place. These codes are used by banks to process international wire transfers and messages. Basically, Swift codes are used by banks to communicate between themselves.
A SWIFT/BIC is an 8-11 character code that identifies a country, city, bank, and branch. An 11 digit code refers to a specific branch, while an 8 digit swift code (or one ending in ‘XXX’) refers to the bank’s head office. Whiles an 11 digit swift identifies the bank branch directly, 8 digit code ends at the bank head office.
SWIFT code registrations are handled by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication thereby bringing the name SWIFT. The term SWIFT is often used interchangeably with BIC, which stands for Bank Identifier Code.
