When sending a payment overseas the SWIFT/BIC code helps us identify the receiving (beneficiary) bank or financial institution (it is not obligatory but we strongly recommend you include it).
If you require assistance or information on SWIFT/BIC code formats please call the ANZ International Services team on 1800 681 683 (toll free) (International callers: +61 3 9277 2499).
