Comprehensive list of Nigerian banks and their SWIFT codes

Comprehensive list of Nigerian banks and their SWIFT codes 1

Most Nigerian banks have Swift codes that enable them to send and receive information on behalf of their customers in a standardised and secure environment. SWIFT, also translated as the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, is part of the ISO 9362 standards for conducting international money transfers. 

In simple terms, a SWIFT Code can be defined as a standard format of Business Identifier Codes (BIC), which are used by banks when transferring money from each other all over the world.

How does a SWIFT code work?

A SWIFT code is required when you conduct an international money transfer and is used to identify a specific bank account in verifying international transactions. It is used in most countries in the world to identify bank branches during international financial transactions and ensures international payments can be done quickly and securely. This means that any money sent to and from Nigeria, for example, can reach its destination safely.

What does a SWIFT code look like?

A SWIFT code can be found as a set of 8 or 11 digits on your bank account statements, although they can also be found online. However, it can sometimes be difficult for customers to find their SWIFT codes on the internet, which is why this article was written.
