Nepal Banks Swift Codes

Nepal Banks Swift Codes: The SWIFT stands for Society for worldwide interbank financial telecommunication communication code. Its an internationally recognized identification code for banks around the world. Swift code is most commonly used for international wire transfer and which is a combined of 11 alphanumeric characters.

The ISO international standard organization was the authoritative body that approved the creation of swift code. Swift code combinations of various kind letters are used to identify the branch code of the banks.

Let’s understand the BIC & Swift

Again, let’s have a look at some background information that will help us better understand why BIC and SWIFT are the same things. Using the term SWIFT code is somewhat inaccurate as what we call a SWIFT code actually its a BIC code.

When the SWIFT network was established, their members determined it was necessary to identify each of them in a standardized manner to facilitate international payments, and to achieve that goal.

So they created a Bank Identifier Code, which is known as its abbreviated form BIC. So essentially, SWIFT, the organization, technically appoints a BIC to each bank member of the SWIFT network.

These codes may also make you pay higher rates depending on the ongoing rates at the time of the transaction.

At present, there are more than 41,000 live Swift codes. Swift code of maybe 8 to 11 digit and has the following components.

The first four characters are used as bank codes, only letters can be used. The next two characters only letters are for country code. The next two characters can read a mix of both numbers and letters.

These are used for location based codes. At the last three characters of the code can be digits and letters and are optional. These last three characters in the swift code are used to give detail about the branch code.
