Chile Bank Format

Post by Indygo » Wed Aug 19, 2020 7:01 am

Hello,

Can you please let me know whether the concept of Bank Codes is familiar in Chile.
eg. Banco Santander has a code of 037.

Is it required for sending of funds? Would someone know the code of their bank?
I've tried searching online, and it's not coming up with much.

Thanks,
Indygo

Sending funds from where? If you're using transferwise or something like that, they will already know the codes, you just pick the bank. You might have to know it if you do a wire transfer in your bank.

037 is the SBIF bank code, you can find all of them here https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superinte ... s_de_Chile
