FNB Universal Branch Code 250655 is the alternative branch code that you can use for any local or international EFT transactions.

Through using the FNB Universal Branch Code of 250655 your transactions are processed much faster.

Branch Code vs Universal Branch Code

Most people want to know what the difference between branch code and universal branch code is, besides, they all sound the same they might say.

Branch code refers to the specific area which that FNB branch is located, and each branch has its own unique code.

Universal branch code on the other hand refers to a generic code that can be used regardless of which bank branch is being used, meaning that the code applies to any and every FNB branch when you are making online payments.

Most South African banks such as ABSA, Nedbank, Capitec and so on are using universal branch codes for all their branches to make it easier for those that are transacting online.

In summary branch code applies to a specific branch only and universal branch code applies to every branch!
