Complete List of Bank SWIFT Codes in the Philippines 2024

When you’re dealing with transactions across borders—sending or receiving funds from family, friends, or clients—the SWIFT code is crucial. It helps the money find its way to the right destination, ensuring a smooth and secure journey. So, whether it’s a money remittance or a wire transfer, having your bank’s SWIFT code is like having a reliable GPS for your global finances. Think of a SWIFT code as your bank’s international passport for money.

What is a SWIFT Code?

Imagine you have a friend in another country, and you want to send them money. Now, banks need a way to identify each other globally to make sure the money gets to the right place. That’s where SWIFT codes come in.

SWIFT, which stands for the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, gives each bank a unique code. It’s like a special address for banks. When you want to send money internationally, you include your bank’s SWIFT code along with other details, and it helps guide the money to the correct destination.

So, in short, SWIFT codes are like international postal codes for banks, ensuring your money reaches the right bank in another part of the world.

What is the purpose of the SWIFT Code?

This verification process is commonly facilitated by the utilization of various terms, including Business Identifier Code (BIC), BIC code, SWIFT-BIC, or SWIFT ID.

These designations collectively refer to the unique alphanumeric codes assigned to financial institutions, ensuring the authentication and protection of financial transactions during interbank communications.

SWIFT Code contains eight to 11 characters format:

  • Bank Code – Four letters
  • Country Code – Two letters
  • Location Code – Two letters or two digits
  • Branch Code – Last three characters

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Thanks

When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

Appreciating the hard work you put into your site and in depth information you present. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

Robinsons Bank just merged with BPI, do they still have separate SWIFT codes or did they produce a new one? Also, will their financial institution address stay the same or will it now be under BPI?

Hi there! This article couldn’t be written much better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this. I am going to forward this article to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a great read. I appreciate you for sharing!
