Reina,

What I know is you can open an account using your sister’s billing address since you’re always out of the Phil.

April,

Maybe it is closed especially when you did not use it for a long time. Your brother should contact the remittance bank or company on what happened to the money.

Edward,

As a foreigner, you may need several identifications when opening a Metrobank account such as passport and alien registration card.

Hi Joel,

There’s no facility for online application, meaning you can’t open via online.

I am a savings account depositor of Metrobank last year thru ATM. I already used the maintaining balance and never use it again. Is it closed already? I would like to ask if i can continue using the same account number. Pls reply. Thank you

Gil March 5, 2013 at 21:38

Hi skinny,

If the account has no money for years or long time, I think it is already closed. You may open another account with different account number. Normally, you cannot use again the old account number.

Hi Augie,

If you have a savings account with your bank, you can invest in time deposit without needing any requirements since you already have a SA in them.
