What is SWIFT Code?

The SWIFT Code (also known as ISO 9362) is used mostly when transfering funds from one financial institution to another. SWIFT stands for The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, which is the organization that handles the registration of these codes. It is a standard format of Business Identifier Codes (BIC) approved by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

The SWIFT code is made up of either 8 or 11 letters.

  • Next 2 letters: ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code
  • Next 2 letters or digits: location code
  • Last 3 letters or digits: branch code, optional ('XXX' for primary office)

An 8-digit code can be assumed as referencing to primary office.

There are over 8,000 “live” codes, which are for the partners who are actively connected to the SWIFT network. In addition, there are more than 10,000 additional codes, which are used for manual transactions.
