  2. It is true that with Bpi Direct, you can open an account online and anytime. I am not an employee, nor do I have a relative working there. But I have opened (and closed) several online accounts at my convenience. You just need to have a “normal” Bpi account to do so which will be linked in your “online” account, which I think is just a standard. So technically, theyre not “fooling” the people into opening an account.

    They also offer better rates (Bpi Direct) than normal savings account. :)

    I have BDO, Bpi, and landbank accounts but most convenient bank I have used so far are BDO and Bpi.

  3. Hi Kabayan!

    Gusto ko sana mag-open ng kabayan savings account. Nandito ako sa Dubai ngayon at bago lang ako dito wala pang 6 months. Pag nag open ba ako ng Kabayan Savings Acct kailangan pa ba yung presence ko sa Pinas?

    1. Hi Bea, try inquiring at BDO remit’s desks Al Fuad Exchange or at Al Nebal in Deira. They should be able to help you open a Kabayan Savings accounting right then and there.

  4. Hello! Kababalik ko lang po nung last May 8, 2015, at dito po ako sa Arizona. Nag busy po ako at hindi ako naka pag open ng acct diyan sa Pilipinas habang naka bakasyon ako. Pwede po ba akong mag open ang acct sa BDO kahit andito ako sa Arizona? Thank you.

    1. Hi Angelica. I will check if BDO has a partner in Arizona. But so far, the nearest BDO remittance partners in your state are these two remittance companies. I believe they have desks for BDO representatives in these offices:

      Hong Lan Services, Inc. 9113 Bolsa Ave., Suite 122 Westminster, California 92683 USA

      Regent Forex 1114 N. Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles California 90029

    1. Hi @zysa, get a copy of your passport with your working visa. If possible, get a copy of the job offer from your agency at yun ang ipakita mo sa bangko as proof na aalis ka ng bansa to work soon.

  7. Pwede po ba pdos certificate lang e present ko sa metrobank as proof? Ksi 1 day lang sa kanila ma release na compare sa bdo 4 days.. Job ofer and pasport I dont think so.. Sa final briefing daw kasi binibigay lahat which is 1 day bfore dparture acording to my agency.
