When you are transferring money to your family or friends who happen to be having a Bank of India account in Singapore, the bank will ask you to provide a correct SWIFT code. The question is, what is actually a SWIFT code?
It’s code used to identify the name of the bank, the country the bank is located, and the location of the primary office. Without the code, your fund transfer may not be able to be transferred to the right recipient.
A SWIFT code consists of eight to eleven different characters. For the Bank of India in Singapore, the SWIFT code is BKIDSGSGXXX. BKID is used to identify the bank, SG refers to the country the bank is residing in, and the other SG is used to determine the location of the head office.
This is the code you will need to provide during the money transfer process. On some occasions, the bank usually requires you to also submit the 3-digit code to identify the branch where the account is created.
To find the SWIFT code, you can either check the bank statements or the bank’s official website. You can also find the Bank of India Singapore SWIFT code and the code of its branch offices in the following list.
