Opening a bank account sa Pinas

Pasensya na po at hindi ko po alam kung saan po ako dapat nagpost nitong thread, so dito na lang muna ako nagpost nito…

Ang tanong ko po ay may alam po ba kayo dito sa TF na kung pwede ba akong magbukas ng bank account dun sa Pinas bilang turista??? Kasi every year bumabalik kami ng asawa ko dun para magbakasyon, kaya akala ko magandang idea iyan siguro magbubukas ng bank account dun… mas mataas ang interest rates kesa dito(at least), hindi na kailangan magdala ng maraming pera galing sa Japan… hindi na masyadong mahalaga ang exchage rate basta gagastos yung pera dun mismo sa Pinas…

Saang bank po ba ang pinakamagandang maglagay ng pera???

Salamat po in advance sa mga sumagot:)

I think you can open an account either in the Philippines or here in Japan with no problem whatsoever. They also have Tagalog-speaking staff.

Hi Teddy. Alam ko Filipino national or spouse of Filipino lang ang pwedeng magbukas ng account sa Pilipinas. Kung resident or may working permit ka sa Pilipinas pwedeng magopen. Since Japanese ka, tingin ko hindi pwede. Pero tanong mo din sa Metrobank at PNB.

I think any foreigners can open a bank account in the Philippines. Mas mataas at competitive ang interest rate na bigay ng RP Banks. Try PNB & Metrobank, they are the only two Philippine Banks licensed to operate in japan. Anyway, ano bang account ang plano mong i-open Peso ba or Yen?

Iniisip kong Php account ang mago-open ako, so pwede kong ilabas yung pera sa Php pag nasa Pinas ako:rolleyes:

As BEBOT said, you can open a Peso savings account based in the Philippines at the PNB branches here in Japan. You cannot however open an ATM account from Japan. (In Japan when you open a savings account most often than not you get a cash card to use in ATMs, apparently this is not the case in the Philippines. You have to open and ATM account to be able to use a ATMs) Also, with savings accounts (with PNB) you have to maintain a minimum amount of P10,000 in your account or you get charged a service fee of P100 per month. If your account is dormant for 2 years you get charged P200 per month. ATM Minimum Maintaining Balance is only P5000. If you have a chance to open an account while you are visiting account why don’t you try opening an ATM account? It also has the advantage of being able to withdraw from ATMs. You will need at least an Alien Certificate of Registration and maybe you passport. Try inquiring about this when you call PNB Tokyo or Nagoya.

I maintained two accounts in metrobank a peso regular savings account and ATM savings account. Both accounts are enrolled at Metrobank Direct ( Internet Banking). I only maintain minimal deposit in my ATM while bulk of my accounts are maintained at Regular Savings. Deposit ako sa Metrobank Osaka branch, meron silang service charge na JPY2000. Ang Deposit ko ay in JPY but converted na sa PHP pag pasok sa account, based sa prevailing exchange rate ng JPY at PHP. Now, kung kailangan ko ng cash, Fund transfer lang ako through internet banking at magagamit ko ang ATM ng Metrobank dito (with Maestro/Cirrus logo) at I can withdraw in JPY. Yung peso account mo mababawasan base naman sa prevailing selling rate ng PHP to JPY on that particular day at meron silang service charge around US$3 per transaction. Ang interest ng Metrobank sa Peso Regular SA ay 2% less 20% w/holding tax credited every 3 months.
