Swift Codes for Nigerian Banks

Nigeria Bank SWIFT Codes

What is SWIFT code?

A SWIFT code is an international bank code that identifies particular banks worldwide used to send money to overseas banks. A SWIFT code consists of 8 or 11 characters; it’s also used as medium of communication between banks within and outside the country.

SWIFT code is also known as a Bank Identifier Code (BIC).

You’ll need to give this code to anyone sending money to you from overseas. The code is made up of letters and numbers.

If you’re sending money to someone overseas you’ll need to get the recipients SWIFT in order to do the transfer.

SWIFT codes and BIC codes are the same thing and the terms are interchangeable. Other terms used by banks overseas include:

CHIPS (Clearing House Inter-Bank Payment System) – US and Canada only

NCC (National Clearing Code)

BSC (Bank Sort Code)

IFSC (Indian Financial System Code).

Please note: when entering a SWIFT in NetBank do not enter spaces, hyphens or special characters.
