When you want to perform an international money transfer, there is one additional detail you will need to submit apart from the account number and the correct name of the account holder, namely a SWIFT code.
It’s a code that is used to identify the bank, the country, and the unit office to which the account is registered. In addition to conducting wire transfer between banks, either domestically or internationally, the bank also uses the SWIFT code to exchange messages with another financial institution.
If you want to transfer some money to your family’s bank account in BNP Paribas Singapore, the SWIFT code you need to submit is BNPASGSGXXX. The four first digit letters are used to identify the bank, the next two letters refer to the country, and the other 2-digit characters refer to the bank’s primary office location. Each branch of the bank uses the same SWIFT code.
However, to ensure the money is transferred to the correct destination, the bank requires the customers to also provide the 8-digit SWIFT code followed by three additional letters. The code can be accessed through the bank statements or the bank’s website. You can also find the code through the following list of BNP Paribas Singapore SWIFT code.
