Swift Code For Zenith Bank Nigeria

2.)Abuja OfficeZEIBNGLA013

Unlike sort codes, only the headquarters of a bank are assigned swift codes.

Although, there are claims that each branch of a bank have its own BIC codes but I find that to be irrelevant.

However, whether relevant or not, they are useless.

Why? Well, we all know that swift codes are used for international transactions and only the headquarters BIC is used in most cases.

Most banks in Nigeria have only one known (at least to the customers) swift codes while couple of others, including Zenith bank, have one for both Lagos and Abuja head offices.

Even as such, the main headquarter (Lagos) swift code is often used.

Zenith swift code is 8 characters for the main headquarter and 11 characters for the Abuja head office.

Below is the breakdown of the code.

  • The first 4 digits (ZEIB) is Zenith bank unique code.
  • Followed by 2 digit (NG) which represents the country (Nigeria).
  • Then the next 2 digit (LA) represents the head office location (Lagos).

Which was how ZEIBNGLA is the swift code of zenith bank plc Lagos, Nigeria.

The Abuja branch however has an extension of 3 digits (013). Meaning Zenith Abuja BIC code is ZEIBNGLA013.
