In this post, you’ll find out the correct Swift Code/Swift BIC for the United Bank For Africa (UBA).
As we’ve earlier noted, if you’re interested in receiving a bank wire from a foreign destination into your UBA account, then you need to know the UBA swift BIC. This will ensure a smooth transfer of your funds from a foreign destination into your local bank account.
BIC simply means Bank Identifier Code while SWIFT stands for Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications.
Both terms are indeed very long, so most people prefer to use the Acronym, SWIFT BIC.
UBA SWIFT Code
The SWIFT Code for the United Bank for Africa is UNAFNGLA. The code is valid irrespective of the branch in which you opened your UBA account.
|Company Name||United Bank For Africa (UBA)|
|Head office||57, Marina, Lagos, Nigeria|
We’ve seen people ask for the SWIFT BIC of the UBA branch near them. However, all the UBA branches in Abuja, Port Harcourt, Lagos, Kaduna, Calabar, Enugu, and indeed every other part of Nigeria must use UNAFNGLA.
Other necessary information
In most cases, you might need to provide some other information, depending on the currency you’ll receive your funds in. Basically, UBA provides 3 variations for the 3 most popular foreign currencies, which are EUR, USD, and GBP.
If you’re expecting to receive funds in any of those currencies, then you’ll have to provide additional information.
You can visit the official website of UBA to get additional information.
However, if you’re receiving funds in any currency other than EUR, USD, and GBP, then go ahead and use UNAFNGLA.
