What is SWIFT Code ?

SWIFT Code is a standard format of Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) which is also a unique Identification Code for a Particular Bank. The full meaning of the SWIFT acronym is Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication which is the body / organization that handles & monitors transaction between International Banks.

  • When and How is it used ?

SWIFT Codes are used when transferring money between banks, particularly for International Wire Transfers. Banks also use the codes for exchanging messages between themselves.

  • How does a SWIFT Code looks like ?

A SWIFT Code usually consists of 8 or 11 characters. When it is 8 characters, it refers to the primary office or headquarter. But when it is 11 characters, it refers to the branch office of that particular Bank.

  • First 4 characters – bank code (only letters)
  • Next 2 characters – ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (only letters)
  • Next 2 characters – location code (letters and digits) (passive participant will have “1” in the second character)
  • Last 3 characters – branch code, optional (‘XXX’ for primary office) (letters and digits)
   Below are the SWIFT Codes of all Banks in Nigeria. The SWIFT Codes listed below are those of the active participant connected to the SWIFT network located in La Hulpe, Belgium. If the SWIFT Code of your Bank is not listed below, that means they are not currently connected to the SWIFT network, thereby referred to as passive participants.
NOTE: You can use the CTRL + F button on your keyboard then type the name of your Bank or Branch to view your Bank’s SWIFT Code easily…Since the list is quite long.
