On today’s post, I would like to share an irrevocable letter of credit sample in swift format.

Recently I have explained the reason why I have started to put sample letters of credit on my website.

Please read my previous article titled “Sample Letters of Credit – Part I” “Introduction to working with a letter of credit sample” to understand pros and cons of lc samples.

Also I highly recommend you to read “Sample Letters of Credit – Part II” – “Guidelines How to read sample letter of credit texts on my web site?” before starting to study my irrevocable letter of credit sample.
