    Hay salamat, Metrobank Concepcion Marikina requires 3 valid ID kaya no choice ako, sa kabilang Bank na lang ako nag open (sana sumunod na sila sa BSP) hehe.

    is BDO following this? WHich banks do?

    1. Jean Berlyn Baldesoto says:

      BPI requires at least 2 valid ID’s. Sad to say that. Nakakainis lang at nawawala yung voter’s ID ng father ko, di na pati na issue ng voter’s ID replacement. San naman kaya kami maghahanap ng ID -_-

  10. Steve Arceta says:

    Smartmoney?

    I might be coming to PI from the USA for about a two months visit. Is it possible for an American to open a bank account for such a short period of time? Also is it possible to obtain a debit Master Card or debit VISA card for use in pesos?
    Thank you.

    @Rich Hill, please refer to our article on How to open a bank account in the Philippines. Inquire with the bank if you can get a debit Master or Visa card. It’s easy for a citizen or resident alien to get one. I’m not sure about non-resident foreigners.

  20. Aya says:

    Valid ID naman pala ang postal ID bat after ko magwait ng more than an hour sa metrobank los banos hindi prinocess yung application ko na magopen ng deposit account dahil di daw valid id ang postal id. She should have said so when I asked her about the requirements. Bastos pa nung naghahandle ng new accounts nila.

    1. Van says:

      Same with eastwest bank..

  21. jessica says:

    true. nagbigay kame ng nanay ko ng postal at voters id! d daw yun valid! nakanaks! naasar lng ako. tsk! 4 na balik ko na kaya! tsk! sa bdo na lng kame. grabe nakakaasar ang bpi. nakaka bt sia!

    1. Allen Mitzie Custodio says:

      I agree, kakagaling ko lang din sa BPI Visayas Ave. branch para sana mag-open din ng acct. nagtanong ako sa customer service nila and tinuro lang yung nakasulat sa harap niya na ayun daw yung mga requirements…sa mga ID’s wala naman nakalagay na di pala nila tinatanggap yung Voter’s and company ID, so bumalik ako sa bahay kasi sa mga requirements na nakasulat yung proof of billing lang wala ako… after mga 1 hour balik ako sa BPI then saka lang niya inexplain yung about sa ID’s, kabadtrip lang si ate customer service na di marunong mag assist ng client.

  22. Van says:

    Also in eastwest bank. Very hard to open an account even with endorsement letter from a company na..

  23. Van says:

    And yes, they do not honor postal ID!

    1. Allen Mitzie Custodio says:

      Bakit ganun sakin may company ID ako and Voter’s ID hindi pa din pwede

  24. ming says:

    ps bank dont honor company ID. tsk tsk

  25. Angel Lois Aragon says:

    Yung AUB ba 2ID’s din ung required?

  26. zel says:

    1. Ron says:

      Hi zel good morning! Ask ko lang..what if walang company id kaya sa pag apply sa BDO? kaka resign ko lang kase and nasurrender ko na ung company id ko..and we have the same id.. NBI and philhealth lang merun ako..

  27. Daisy Papina says:
