I did the same thing at our Metrobank location about 3 months ago. Only difference it took less that five minutes in the bank and was done. Must have been just your bank branch or caught them on a bad day. We've had Metrobank for years and years and never a problem of any kind.

I think it was payday. Still not impressed with customer service at any Philippine bank. HSBC will get my next account.

I thought of doing that as well, problem is HSBC banks are very few and far between in Philippines.
I opened my account here with PS Bank. My branch is Matina in Davao. I must say I am very impressed with the customer service. Last week I withdrew P100k, which of course is over my ATM limit, from my branch. All done inside 5 minutes. Last November I wanted a managers cheque for P1.8m to purchase my new truck from the Ford dealer in BFC Manila. I went to the closest PS Bank branch without any prior arrangement and told them what I wanted, all done within 20 minutes and sat in managers office with a cup of coffee whilst I waited.

I bank at HSBC here and at home. I opened my account when I was on a tourist visa no issues.

Easy to transfer funds from Canada to here, just like moving money between savings and chequing accounts at home. I can see balances on all global accounts from each country web site but need to be on country site to see details or make transactions.

ATM limit is 40k per withdrawl and 100k daily limit which is nice.

What is an ACR1?

As far as I understand it, SRRV cannot get a bank account. Only Residents are allowed to do that.

I will never get a bank account in the RP, as I refuse to give my US Social Security Number to a 3rd world bank.

<Snip>
Hi balut, welcome to the forum, read lots as we do, lots of info in this site.
An ACR1 card is ID given to foreigners/tourists that stay in the country longer than 59 days and is mandatory, see link:

ACR I-CARD Issuance

SRRV "special resident retirement visa" Bank, Tax file number, work, entry and exit privileges and more, see link/research.

Special Resident Retiree's Visa (SRRV) | Embassy of the Philippines in the Nordics

I was living in Manila 5 years ago on a tourist visa holding an ACR1 card and though proving difficult for me eventually opened 2 accounts with BDO, I don't recall giving them my Australian tax file number but if I did there have been no problems and don't expect any.

Cheers, Steve.

Did you read? Probably not. FYI BDO banks are franchised and while they have a corporate blanket rule of thumb it appears that the managers set their own rules and requirements that their staff adhere to, remember this is the Philippines.

Cheers, Steve.

As for the SRRV deposit. Is that a regular bank account? And can you transfer that deposit?

American SSN is likely different than the OZ one. In the USA, you can ruin someone's entire life with it. I am not afraid of people having my Philippine SSS. For one, it is not my whole life. Also, no one is going to get my SSS benefits, becasue they need my UMID, another ID, and my fingerprints.

How do you like the heat compared to Norway?
I am a bit puzzled by your last sentence, Australia is south of the Equator, Norway is in Scandanavia? Knowing Steve as I do, he would have no idea of the temperature in Norway, other than it is bloody cold most of the time.

balut, for the uneducated I will post another link if the moderators don't mind as one of the links I provided won't open,,,,,, did when I looked at it but not now, balut you can research this yourself if you don't believe or are too slack to look yourself, Monday morning here and nothing better to do than bombard this site with misguided ideas on what is right and what is wrong in the Philippines.

https://www.justlanded.com/english/P...The-ACR-I-card

So while we are talking it appears you hold SSS in PH meaning you are a PH national, Correct?

As for SRRV benefits you can research that yourself, as for the heat compared to Norway? very left field and you obviously don't know what an Aussie flag looks like. Never been to Norway so can't comment.

What part of the Philippines re you from? If you are simply trawling to while away your time let us know.

Cheers, Steve.

Why would I post a link without reading it first?


Like all the links you posted that were moderated? You ask but simply don't listen/have an agenda.
If you read the links your questions are answered or if unsure further research.
I asked you if you hold SSS in the Philippines as you suggested you did, that makes you a Filipino so why are you here, what are you looking for, you ask but don't listen to answers and clearly are not interested in learning/researching, simply provoking.
Gods speed to you and I am sure if you keep up these tactics no one will waste their time talking to you.
