The SWIFT code is a unique universal code that can be from 8 to 11 characters in length, used to make transfers between accounts in different countries. SWIFT stands for Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication. Through this code, it is possible to connect financial institutions worldwide to allow the sending and receiving of money.
For this reason, if you need to receive amounts in your Nomad account and the depositor doesn't have a U.S.-based account, you must inform the Swift code for this international transaction to take place. There is no need to use the Swift code for transfers between U.S. accounts.
