What Is a Bank Code?

One essential piece of information is the bank code, which is a unique three-digit code assigned to each bank to clearly identify itself together with its associated branches. These codes are used to facilitate interbank transfers both locally and internationally.

Why Are Bank Codes Important?

Providing the bank code when making a payment is important because it allows for transactions to be processed efficiently and accurately, to get the payments to the proper recipient in the quickest way. And in the case of some missing information, you may face the risk of a delayed transaction or it may even get rejected.

If you're making local transfers in Hong Kong, you may need to know the bank codes of some of the more popular banks we cover in the list below.

Bank Codes for International Transfers

While bank codes are used in Hong Kong to facilitate interbank transfers locally, you will need additional information to make international transfers.

In order to make and receive international transfers, you will need either a SWIFT code or an IBAN number. These are also unique identifiers that help facilitate cross-border payments to ensure that funds are directed to the correct recipient.

💡 Insight: Know the difference between a Local Transfer and a SWIFT Transfer.
