What is a SWIFT Code?

Bank SWIFT Code in Bangladesh is very important for international transaction. Business Identifier Codes are defined in accordance with ISO 9362, which was approved by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is sometimes referred to as SWIFT-BIC, BIC code, SWIFT ID, or SWIFT code. Both financial and non-financial institutions can use this special identifying code. The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (abbreviated “SWIFT”) is the organization in charge of registering these codes.

The code may also be referred to as a Business Entity Identifier, or BEI, when allocated to a non-financial institution. These codes are used to transmit various messages between banks as well as to move money between them, especially for international wire transfers. On account statements, the codes can occasionally be discovered.
