with 2 Comments

Below is a list of all the active Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) in the active SWIFT Network for banks in the Philippines at the beginning of 2013 (corrections welcome!).  This is a benefit to our Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).

SWIFT CODE

SWIFT Code or BIC code are part of ISO 9362 standards. It is a standard format of Business Identifier Codes (“BIC”). BIC sometimes also refers to “Bank Identifier Code”.

SWIFT Code or BIC Code is a unique code to identify financial and non-financial institutions.  The SWIFT code is a standard format of Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) and it is unique identification code for a particular bank. These codes are mostly used when transferring money between banks, especially for international wire transfers or telegraphic transfer (“TT”).  These codes are also used in exchanging other messages between banks.

For individual users, SWIFT Code normally used to transmit money across the international border.

The SWIFT code consists of 8 or 11 characters. When 8-digits code is given, it refers to the primary office.

  • First 4 characters – bank code (only letters)
  • Next 2 characters – ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (only letters)
  • Next 2 characters – location code (letters and digits) (passive participant will have “1” in the second character)
  • Last 3 characters – branch code, optional (‘XXX’ for primary office) (letters and digits)

Currently, there are over 7,500 “live” SWIFT codes. The “live” codes are for the partners who are actively connected to the SWIFT network. On top of that, there are more than 10,000 additional codes, which are used for manual transactions. These additional codes are for the passive participants.

The registrations of SWIFT Codes are handled by Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (“SWIFT”) and their headquarters is located in La Hulpe, Belgium.

SWIFT is the registered trademarks of S.W.I.F.T. SCRL with a registered address at Avenue Adèle 1, B-1310 La Hulpe, Belgium.

      We believe the information is correct and usable for Philippine Swift Codes. However, if you have found an error, please call the bank (Allied Bank in this case) and supply us the corrected information. However, you may want to check yourself for typographical errors. This is the usual problem.
