SWIFT Code Lookup, more than just a format checker

Checking only the format of a SWIFT Code is no guarantee of validity.

The only way to be sure that a SWIFT code is correct is to check against the latest official SWIFT directory. Uniquely, BankVal International does just this.

What is a SWIFT code?

S.W.I.F.T (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications) is the designated registered authority for the assignment and publication of BICs and the BIC directory.

Banks use the SWIFT communications system to send and receive messages worldwide.

A BIC (Bank Identifier Code) is a unique code which identifies all banks on the SWIFT network.
