Many people are wondering what is Bank Swift Code ? To make it simple, Bank Swift code is like an identity for the bank you selected. Every bank in this world has their unique swift code for the identification purpose. For example, Bank in Malaysia all included the code -'MY' as the short form of 'Malaysia'. All the banks in Malaysia are using the swift code in the following format :

For full list of the Malaysia Bank Swift Code, check the list below :

Affin Bank Berhad = PHBMMYKL
Alliance Bank Berhad = MFBBMYKL
Ambank Berhad = ARBKMYKL
Bank Simpanan Nasional = BSNAMYKL
Bumiputra-Commerce Bank Berhad = BCBMMYKL
Citibank Berhad Malaysia = CITIMYKL
Hong Kong Bank Malaysia Berhad = HBMBMYKL
Hong Leong Bank Berhad = HLBBMYKL
Malayan Banking Berhad = MBBEMYKL
OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad = OCBCMYKL
Public Bank Berhad = PBBEMYKL
RHB Bank Berhad = RHBBMYKL
Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia Berhad = SCBLMYKL

**Even the branch of your bank is not KL, you still can use the above swift code that ended with 'KL' because 'KL' representing Kuala Lumpur as the HQ for these banks, so the swift code for the HQ can be applied to all the branch in Penisular Malaysia.
