I am going to list the swift and sort codes of all banks in Ghana.
Let us know what a swift code is and its uses.
There are 28 Banks which are duely licensed by the Bank of Ghana to operate in Ghana.
What is a swift code?
Swift Code is a standard format of Bank Identifier Codes (BIC) and it is unique identification code for a particular bank.
The code is used when transferring funds between banks, specifically for international bank wire transfers.
Swift code consists of 8 or 11 characters.
When 8 characters are given, it refers to the bank’s primary office.
Let us look at the example below before we list the swift codes for banks in Ghana.
Assuming the swift code for a particular bank is AAAA BB CC DDD
- First four characters – bank code (letters only)
- Next two characters – ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (only letters)
- Next two characters – location code (letters and digits)
- Last three characters – branch code (XXX means primary office) (letters and digits)
Below are the swift codes for all banks in Ghana.

Is a SWIFT code the same for all bank branches?
Not every bank branch has a SWIFT code, which means you can usually use the code for the bank’s head office.
I would like to hear from you.
Is there a bank in Ghana that I left out?
