First Bank of Nigeria Swift Code
A swift code is a unique identifier for every institution’s branch in the world. This code is absolutely vital for transferring money securely from one institution to another and our site is a specialized search engine for these codes and the institutions that carry them.
These codes are known as swift codes due to the organization that first introduced them (SWIFT – Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) but were later standardized as BIC (Business Identifier Codes). A swift code can be formed with either 8 or 11 characters. Generally speaking, most of the time, you will only need the eight-character swift code, that consists of 3 parts: the identifier of the institution (4 characters), the identifier of the country (2 characters), and the identifier of the location (2 characters). However, in some cases, if your bank processes payments through a specific branch you will need the eleven digit code which includes the branch identifier as well.
An example code would be BARCGB22XXX which is the unique identifier for the main offices of BARCLAYS BANK PLC based in London, UK.
When you browse the swift code database on this website, not only will you be able to locate the BIC code of the institution in question, but you will also be able to find out a plethora of other information related to it. This includes the institution’s location as well as every branch’s physical address. In addition to this, you will be able to find out both the country and city of origin.
