What is a SWIFT code?

The Wikipedia description...
The SWIFT code is 8 or 11 characters,  made up of:
4 letters: Bank code  or Institution Code.
2 letters: ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code
2 letters or digits: location code

  • if the second character is "0", then it is typically a test BIC as opposed to a BIC used on the live network.
  • if the second character is "1", then it denotes a passive participant in the SWIFT network
  • if the second character is "2", then it typically indicates a reverse billing BIC, where the recipient pays for the message as opposed to the more usual mode whereby the sender pays for the message.

3 letters or digits: branch code, optional ('XXX' for primary office). Where an 8-digit code is given, it may be assumed that it refers to the primary office.
