People from abroad can now send money to a Nepali bank account directly with the help of a wire transfer using Nepali Bank SWIFT Codes. You cannot send or receive funds directly in a Nepali bank account without the Nepali Bank SWIFT codes. People in Nepal can receive money from abroad using remittance which doesn’t require a bank account or Nepali Bank SWIFT codes.
However, getting money directly into your account is easy! Right? So, in this blog, I have mentioned a list of Nepali bank SWIFT codes that can be helpful for making your international transaction easy and smooth.
The SWIFT code is usually required when you conduct an international money transfer and is used to identify a specific bank account in the process of verifying international transactions. It can be found as a set of 8 or 11 digits on your bank account statements.
In 1973, to ease and smoothen the exchanges that occurred globally, Brussels set up certain guidelines and a typical procedure to complete the exchanges and set up SWIFT.
This organization helps banks across the to send and receive money between banks from one country to another. It works in more than 212 countries, and more than 11,000 organizations are connected to the SWIFT network. This organisation assists banks in secure money transfers.
SWIFT also empowers two banks in various nations to communicate about monetary exchanges safely and precisely in a flash; it is just a messaging network that facilitates money transfer instructions, other names include Bank Identification Code and Bank Identifier Code (BIC).
The SWIFT or Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) involve various letters. Various banks have different codes. The main role these codes serve is correspondence between banks concerning international transactions. It looks like the postcodes since the chief task is to guarantee that the cash moves to the perfect address. These codes are fundamental for international bank wire transfers.
Similarly, all banks in Nepal have their own Nepali Bank SWIFT codes.
