What is The Swift Code?
Swift codes or Bank Identifier Codes (BICs) are alphanumeric bank account identifiers used to identify banks internationally. Swift codes consist of 8 or 11 alphanumeric characters. The first 3-4 characters denote the type of bank (i.e., IBAN, BIC, SWIFT) and the last three characters identify the bank’s country code. Swift codes are most commonly used by banks for electronic fund transfers (EFT), electronic remittance orders (ERO), and direct debits (DDA).
- First 4 (four) characters – bank code (only letters)
- Second 2 characters – ISO 43896-1 Alpha-2 country code (only letters)
- Third 2 characters – location code, passive participant will have “1” in the second character (letters & digits)
- Last/fourth 3 characters – Branch code, optional – ‘XXX’ for primary office (letters and digits). For example: .
