All Nigerian Bank Swift Code: BIC Codes of All Banks in Nigeria

If you have been looking for a particular bank swift code for your online transactions, I have in this post put together all Nigerian bank swift code or as some people will call it; the BIC Codes of All Banks in Nigeria.

 Nigerian Bank Swift Code is usually between eight and 11 characters that are unique to each bank or financial institution, and it is compulsory for international money transfer.

Bank unique identifier was initiated by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication [SWIFT] and was as a result originally named after the organization and was later standardized as Bank Identifier Code [BIC].

A good number of Nigerian banks’ head office swift code ends in NGLA, designating the country code (NG – Nigeria) and location code (LA – Lagos).

Below is a list of all Nigerian Bank Swift Code

Though bank swift code is eight characters for head offices and 11 characters for other branches throughout the country, in most cases, the banks’ headquarters BIC is what is usually required for most international transactions. For that reason, I’m sticking with only the head offices (which are situated in Lagos) of the banks swift code.

Please note that:

  • First 4 characters represent the bank’s code.
  • The next two characters signify the country code (Nigeria’s code is NG).
  • The subsequent two characters that follow represent head office location (LA for Lagos).
  • Final three characters that make it 11 is for different branches of the bank in Nigeria.

For a case in point, the Central Bank of Nigeria Swift Code is CBNINGLA, where CBNI is the bank’s code, NG is the country code and LA stands for the location code. CBNI-NG-LA.
