When opening a savings account, I prefer Metrobank, BDO, and BPI. They are the top 3 bank in the Philippines and they are safe and secure.

Good Day.
I just want to inquire if I can open Metrobank account here in Dubai and what are the requirements needed and where?

Rommel Adaro January 30, 2015 at 21:17

Does metrobank have a feature for me to open on-line a dollar account using the profile of my existing peso account?
I am presently working in KSA and not available to personally open the account.

Good day,

Sir how can I apply a bank account to metrobank since I’m here in Qatar, I want to save my money in a bank so that when I’m going back to the Philippines I have my own savings.


Gily Tenorio October 11, 2014 at 11:37

Nilo, I’m not sure if there’s Metrobank there in Qatar. You should ask to your Pinoy officemates or friends what Phil banks are located there in your area.

nagdeposit po sa account q ung kuya ko in abroad..nung i tried to withdraw di ko na maopen ung account ko..closed na po ba un?..pano ko po makukuha ung perang dineposit dun?..or maibabalik po sa knya ng teller ung dineposit nya?

Gily Tenorio September 11, 2013 at 00:44


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.

I am arranging to move to the Philippines and I was wanting to get a Bank Account with Metro Bank,
I am a US citizen,working as a DOD Contractor for US Goverment in Afghanistan.
Can I apply for a Bank Account in the Philippines?

Gily Tenorio August 25, 2013 at 11:41


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

stephanie July 23, 2013 at 02:21

Hi po.. just want to ask how much initial amount pag mag open ng passbook?

Gily Tenorio July 27, 2013 at 10:49

Hi, normally the minimum amount to open a passbook account is P10,000.

hi, i would like to know if i can open an account online even if im still here working abroad? thank you

Gil March 16, 2013 at 01:29

Hi Joel,

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

skinny March 3, 2013 at 03:19

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.

Jessie S. February 5, 2013 at 01:33

Yes there’s a charge for falling below the maintaining balance around P200.

You can open an account through BPI direct, just check their website.

Ladyguada20 September 19, 2011 at 10:24

i have tried this BPI direct but it just only available in some countries not include Denmark…do you know any bank that can allow to open account online aside of this?

Josephine_staana2000 September 11, 2011 at 04:57

Anonymous September 15, 2011 at 03:26

Hi Josephine,

You may try to open an account at BPI Direct.

Anonymous September 6, 2011 at 12:16

Hi, you should use your ATM, if you cannot use it anymore, your account number is not active.

hi is it possible to open a savings account in peso or in dollar online? thank you!

Anonymous August 15, 2011 at 12:53


Metrobank has no online facility for opening an account online.

Jed Mallen August 11, 2011 at 09:13

you just listed the process, and it is a very general process. what most people are looking for is a list of the actual requirements needed to open a Metrobank account..

Anonymous August 14, 2011 at 04:24


I created a post showing the requirements when applying a SA in most of the Phil. banks:

Augie August 9, 2011 at 07:18

what is the requirements for opening time deposit account? is the same by the savings account requirements?

Anonymous August 14, 2011 at 04:07

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.
