  1. Hi ma’am Nora dito po ako s Saudi ang location ko po al dawadmi ask ko po kung panu maghulog s account ng anak ko.

  2. Hi Ms. Nora,
    Gusto ko lang itanong kung pwede po ba mag open ng account dito sa Saudi. Im currently working here in Al Ahsa po. May malapit po ba na bank dito? Any bank po. Samalat po

  3. hello po ma’am nora Good Day po, ask ko lang po next na padala ko po ba, may clearing pa po ba sa ipapadala ko pang 2x na beses ko palang po magpapadala sa account ng asawa ko sa pinas salamat po.

  4. Hi karl, sori walang text service ang BPI. Puedeng i-enroll ni misis ang kanyang account sa BPI online banking para icheck niya online ang balance bago pumunta sa BPI atm. This is how to enroll: https://www.bpiexpressonline.com/p/1/1620/pamana-padala-how-to-enroll-in-online-banking-philippine-based. After na-activate na ang enrollment sa BPI atm, puede rin niyang i-download sa Google Play or App Store yong BPI app, para mas madali pa ang pag-check ng balance. Dapat siya lang or kayo lang ang nakakaalam ng login details niya

  5. nagpadala ako kagabi sa remittance bank to bank ng alrajhi always dun naman ako nagpapadala pero as of this time wala parin daw ung remittance ko sa kanila pakitulungan naman ako salamat

  6. Hi nora salamat sa ifo, tanung ko lang po pag palage na ako nagpapadala sa account ng asawa ko sa bpi sa pinas every end of the month, palage po ba 3days ang proccess bago makuha ang pera kada paladala sa account ng asawa ko, my notification po ba sa number ng asawa ko un kung pwede na nia makuha, para hindi na po sya magpabalik balik sa banko medyo may kalayuan pa po kc sa lugar namin ung pinaka malapit na BPI , thank’s

  7. Hi karl, ask you wife to try making a balance inquiry sa BPI machine. Kung merong response at merong balance, active pa ang account ng wife mo, at puede mong padalhan ang account. Pero kung wiwidrohin niya agad yong pera, malamang magkakaroon ng 300-peso deduction ang account kasi hindi na-maintain for 2 consecutive months. 3k ang maintaining balance requirement ng BPI atm savings account. Dapat mag-iwan ng at least 3k sa account (andon dapat sa account yong 3k everyday) para sa June, wala nang deduction. About speed of remittance, same day to 3 days, depende sa remitter.

  8. hi nora 1 mothh na mahigit hindi nakapag deposit asawa ko sa bpi atm card nia, last month na widraw ng asawa ko ung lahat ng laman ng atm nia sa teller sya nag punta, balak ko sana mag deposit ng pera galing ng saudi arabia, hindi pa po kaya close ung account ng asawa ko sa bpi, ilang days po proccess bago makuha pera, kapag nagpadala galing saudi arabia, 1st time lang po kasi makapag deposit sa bpi sa pinas, thanks po

  9. good day po! may delay po ba ang pag recieve ng money from saudi? kung meron po, mga ilang oras po ba yun?

  10. Hello po mis nora.

    gusto ko po sanang mgwithdraw from my BPI account here in jeddah, can you suggest a bank na may pinakambabang charge? kasi i tried with al alinma, kaso ang charge nya is 30sr per withdraw tpos 1000sr lang ang limit per day. meron po bang ibang bank na mas mababa at mas mlaki ang allowable na limit ng withdrawls? salamat po. Godbless.

  11. Hi ilang oras o araw bago po ma receive ang remittance from kuwait sa bpi dito sa Pinas? Thanks po

  12. Hi Renson, you said “deposit muna dito at pwd b cya mawidraw s pilipinas?”. Sorry hindi puedeng magdeposit diyan kasi walang BPI branch diyan. What you will do is magpadala ka ng money to your BPI account through a remittance partner of BPI. Use your account number (at the back of your atm card, usually 10 digits). Here are BPI remittance partners in KSA. You can enroll in BPI online banking para ma-check mo ang balance mo from time to time. Free ang online banking. Yes, you can withdraw your money in the Philippines because your BPI account is based in the Philippines.

  13. My atm po ako ngayon dala galing pilipinas. Bpi po.cya. gusto ko po makaipon at ilagay s bpi atm ang pero ko. Gusto ko po.depoait muna dto at pwd b cya mawidraw s pilipinas mam. Dto po ako riyadh ksa. Salamat po s sagot

  14. Hi ms nora ask ko lang if how many hours bago ma receive yung padala sakin through saudi its bank to bank basis po kasi. Bpi yung bank account ko.

  15. Hi Mary ann, yes, puedeng magdeposit ang sinuman sa iyong BDO account over the counter sa BDO. Pero para ma-maintain na Kabayan ang account mo, dapat meron kang remittance from abroad to your account at least once every 12 months. Kapag hindi, maco-convert into regular passbook account ang iyong Kabayan, at dapat mag-maintain ka na ng at least 10k pesos in your account to avoid penalties.

  16. Hello po.ask ko lng po..me passbook po ako dala ko dito now..gusto ko po sana mk pag deposit pwede po b mag utos n lng aqo sa kamg ank ko sa pinas…pra mk pag deposit.

  17. Mam nora pwede ko po mag hulog ng pera sa atm ko n bpi pero d ko p po na update sa phil. Ofw po aq

  18. Hellow po ask ko lng po may bpi atm din po aq dto aq sa jeddah saudi arabia gsto ko mag diposit ng pera sa card ko kaso nag dadalawang isip aq kasi kaylangan p daw i update ung account ko okay lng ba n mag deposit ako kahit d updatde acc. Ko? At pano ko sya malalaman kung pumapasok tlaga ung pera n hinuhulog ko if ever n pwede aq mag dposite khit d ko na update ung bpi atm ko?

  19. Hi Kris, yes, malamang papasok sa account mo, kasi yong first 3 or 4 digits naman ng account number ay code ng branch. Pag wala pa in 3 business days, call BPI 89-100

  20. Hi ms. Nora tanong KO lang ngpadala ang asawa ko ng pera sakin sa bpi account dito tama ang account number at account name Mali lang ng branch. May possibilities p bang pmsok un?

  21. Hi princess, sorry hindi, kasi mali yong account name. Ang gawin ng bf mo is to go back to where he sent the money and make an amendment to his remittance. Merong charge usually. He tells the clerk that he needs to change the name of his beneficiary or receiver or recipient.

  22. Tanong ko lng po nagtransfer yung bf ko ng pera from saudi sa bpi account ko dto the problem is mali yung account name pero tama ung account number.ppasok pa din po ba un o hindi? Thanks

  23. Hi Daisy, sorry, BPI or other banks will not give you information about your husband’s account because it’s not your account. There’s the banking privacy law. What your husband can do is call BPI from Saudi: 63 + 2 + 89-10000. He should be ready with his account number and his latest transactions.
    What you can do is to do a test deposit — go to the nearest BPI and use their BEA machine (choose Deposit and enter your husband’s account number and get your queuing number). Deposit maybe 200 to 500 pesos to your husband’s account. If your deposit is accepted by the teller, and you’re given a receipt, it means your husband’s account is active. But your husband should call BPI so he can ask for the balance.

  24. Helow po wanted to ask questions wHO ever can share thier knowledge about it,my husband is ofw in saudi arabia and according to him he has an accnt at BPI AND HE CAN ONLY WIDRAW IT IF HE IS IN THE PHILIPPINES ALREADY,HE WANTED TO TRACE PO THROUGH ME IF HIS ACCOUNT HERE IN PHILIPPINES IS UPDATED,AND THE MONEY THAT HE DEPOSIT THIER IS IN,,,
    WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?HOW TO APROACH THE BPI HERE IN PHILIPPINES,TANK U PO

  25. Hi bong, that’s more than 5k pesos. Hindi puedeng charge lang yan. Puede lang ang ganyang deduction kung napabayaan mo ang account mo na below the maintaining balance requirement for about 17 months. Call BPI. Be ready with all your details (account no., mother’s maiden name, date of last transaction prior to this one, balance, etc.) para mabilis: 63 + 2 + 89-10000

  26. hi, im here in riyadh,almost 2 months q indi naopen ung bpi debit card q,ung last transaction q po.pag check balance q more than 400riyals ung nawala.indi q alam iung bakit eh gcheck balance lng aman po aq…

  27. Hi Sampaguita, ask your friend to visit BPI Legazpi and ask about her remittance. There could be a glitch or an error or personal data that BPI wants her to update, as the money is bigger than regular remittances. She should bring her IDs.

  28. Hi, my friend deposited 500K from Oman to BPI Leagspi Branch, tuesday last week today is already tuesday and the money is not yet in her account. How long does it take to clear?

  29. helo Ms. Nora,im currently in jeddah, i already enroled my bpi account online, but it needs me to send the form with my signature at bpi makati,phil..its hard too expensive to do that. How can i activate my online reg. here in jeddah,is there any bpi branch here to transact? thankyou

  30. Hi Cornelio, wala silang rep sa Jeddah. BPI International Toll-Free Number if using landline: 8008-63-0008
    Marketing officer Mobile Number in Riyadh: +966550935331 / +966552535811

  31. Dear Ms.Nora,

    Can you provide me contact no. of BPI representative where i can follow up my remittances through ENJAZ. I send last night to BPI beneficiary but until now she did not receive the remittances. Please help me i need to contact their representative here in Jeddah Saudi Arabia.

    Thanks a lot.

  32. Hi Mohiden Mariga, it’s so sad that you’re not able to activate your online banking. Is your account a BPI account? Have you done their procedure for enrolling while abroad? This is their procedure on how to enroll in BPI online banking while abroad. If not done this procedure, wait for about 3 weeks to a month so your previous online enrollment will be automatically canceled, then enroll again, following their procedure. I hope you can comment again later on

  33. dearest Nora, I am now presently working in Saudi Arabia and when I spent my vacation in the Philippines, I open an ATM Account. I want to enroll on line but required me to submit my signature to the Philippines. I did it so but no any reply to my email if that was already approved or not. Then I enrolled online banking again but I can not access anymore because it said I have my account already but still I am loging in I can not saying mistake my password. I tried to reset my password but the procedure is torturing me especially I am not just sitting and need to consume so many effort and calling just to reset my passwords. If Philippines is just a few step only i will reject this ATM card with me. What I only is to have an access online that I can monitor my account. But it tortured me a lot.

  34. Hi Romel, if you will be based in the Riyadh headquarters, here’s a list of BPI Remittance partners in Riyadh. You commented under a BPI article, so I assume you already have a BPI account. If you have, it’s good if you enroll your account in BPI banking while you are here in the Phils so you can activate it while in the Phils via a BPI atm. You can then track your account online while you’re in Saudi. The ideal set-up is you have your own BPI account and another family member has his/her own BPI account. You enroll in BPI online banking, then enroll your family member’s account into your online banking account. Activate this also while you’re here in the Phils.
    Then while in Saudi, send money to your own account using Enjaz (Bank Al-Bilad) or Al Rajhi or Samba Speedcash, then transfer online from your account to your family’s account (free kasi the same BPI accounts). This way, you can save in your own account, and at the same time you’re able to provide for your family. Have a great journey in Saudi. God bless too

  35. Hi Mrs Nora im bound to Saudi MODA maybe this week as ofw that we had and possible nearest remittance in my location, for easy acces my salary to my family here at the Philippine and how to process thanks and god bless you!

  36. Hi Jen, you need to call BPI 632-8910000 because banks release account info only to the account owner. Or you can ask your family to deposit 100 pesos to your account, and if the deposit is accepted, it means your account is active. For atm withdrawal, it’s best to withdraw from BPI ATMs so it’s free. Withdrawal fee at other banks’ atms is 15 pesos. If your account has no passbook, you can withdraw over the counter if you withdraw more than 20k

  37. HI Ms. Nora. I have my current BPI atm card and i need to know if it is still active. I am working here in Riyadh and will take my vacation soon. My plan is to transfer my salary here in riyadh to my bpi account and before I do it I need to confirm if it is still active.
    Secondly, what atm machines or bank branch that can I use my BPI for withdraw.

  38. Hi Rose, Com Bank of Qatar is a BPI correspondent bank so the process should not take long. I think it’s on the part of the Qatari bank. 3 days is the average, but it can take up to 5 days or more. Hope you’ll get it today. By the way, did you make the wire transfer when you were here in the Phils and then you traveled to Qatar? I’m curious because I think BPI does not offer wire transfer application online.

  39. Hi I transfer money from BPI to here Commercial Bank of Qatar,until now I didn’t have it in my account they told me 3 working days but it is now more than 3 days..I am worried on what is happening..how long does really it takes?

  40. Hi Abril, it’s commendable that you still want to pay your loan in KSA while you’re now here in the Phils. You can send money abroad through Western Union but your recipient needs to claim it from Western Union, so it’s not possible to pay your loan through Western Union.
    When you were in Saudi, how did you pay your loan? Is it through your Al Rajhi Bank account? Do they get your payment through your account? If so, then you can make your payment through international wire transfer to your own account with Al Rajhi. But since you’re not sure if your Al Rajhi account is still active, email Al Rajhi (care@alrajhibank.com.sa — I got this from their website) and ask if your account is still active, so you can send your loan payment to your account. Ask also their Swift code. According to Swift, it’s RJHISARI, but it’s still good to ask Al Rajhi. If someone from Al Rajhi emails you to send money to his/her account, don’t send money. Never send money to a person there in Al Rajhi. It should either be to Al Rajhi or to your account.
    I searched the international wire transfer services of BDO and BPI, and it’s BPI’s wire transfer service that’s better and cheaper. But you should have or open an account with BPI (the same with other banks’ wire transfer requirement). With BPI, it can be peso or dollar account. With BDO, it should be dollar account. I hope you can comment again about Al Rajhi’s response to your email.

  41. Hi.i wanted to send money to al rajhibank jubail branch in ksa from philippines to pay my loan but i dont know how.even im not sure if my bank account there is still active since i went exit last nov 2015. Originally i planned to come back but i got pregnant so i cant pursue my application abroad for a job. Im still having unpaid loan and i want to continue paying it in monthly basis. Could you pls tell me the steps i must do in order for me to pay my unpaid debt from the bank? Thanks a lot.

  42. I am currently in the phils for a vacation and tried to use my fransi bank atm in banks here with visa logo but it does not work. Pls advise.

  43. Hi Collin, sad to say, BPI does not offer account opening overseas, except in the UK as there’s a BPI Europe. In the past, opening online was possible with BPI Direct for OFWs in 5 countries, but I don’t know why they stopped it.

  44. Hi, im an hour far from Dammam, KSA and I want to open a BPI account. Is it possible now?

  45. Hi Viel, it depends on the remittance company. Remittance can take from within the next hour to next day to 7 days. But mostly, it should take only up to 3 days.

  46. my friend send me a money from Riyahd to my BPI account. but i still have nothing from my BPI account. how long would it take to process from Riyahd to BPI Philippines

  47. Hi Jeynalyn, it should already be in your account. Did you use wire transfer? Sometimes wire transfers take longer. If it’s still not there by Friday or Monday, ask your remittance company, then call BPI +632-89-10000

  48. Ive sent last Saturday an amount of money through my BPI savings account which used to be my account when I was still connected in my previous work almost two months ago.But until now it is not in my ATM yet .How long does it take to process the money? I’m currently working here in Al Ahsa.

  49. Hi Gilbert, do you mean over-the-counter withdrawal? Sorry but that service is not offered. You can withdraw via atm if your atm card has a Mastercard or Visa logo or other global payment network. Find an atm with the same logo as that on your card. Another option: Register in Banque Saudi Fransi’s online banking. I checked your bank’s website and money transfer to other countries is offered via online banking. You need your atm card no., atm PIN, account no. and iqama. If these are the only things they need, and you don’t have to activate your enrollment via a Banque atm machine in Saudi, then this option is great for you. I hope you can comment again and update us if validation in Saudi is not required. I’m just curious. Thanks

  50. Hi Nora, i have an acct from banque saudi fransi,i am presently on a vacation leave here in the Philippines.i would like to ask if i can possibly make a withdrawal from any corresponding bank here in the philippines.and what bank it can be possible.thanks.

  51. im here in jeddah saudi if im going to send money in phil 1350 riyal how much will bee the service and transfer fee

  52. Hi nora can you give me a contact no.of the person representative from bpi here in saudi arabia..im in jeddah now and i want to track my remittance but fortunately the mobile no.given to me by ENJAZ is not available anymore. And also is there any possible to change my BPI Card since it was already broken.

    Thank you

  53. Hi Hazel, do you mean ENJAZ? Enjaz is the remittance company of BANK ALBILAD. If you have a bank account, ask your bank if you can make a wire transfer to Bank Albilad. BDO makes a wire transfer only online for those with a US dollar account. Other banks might do a wire transfer for you. You need to have your recipient’s bank name, account no. and swift code. An easier option is to send to your sister through Western Union. Your sister will pick up your money at a Western Union shop there. Send her the Western Union money transfer control no. The name you write should be the same as your sister’s name on her ID.

  54. Hi may I ask how can I send money to Dammam Saudi Arabia? My sister told me that their bank in saudi is INJIAS what bank here in the Philippines can I deposit?

  55. Hi there. My brother is working in Qatar, He will be sending me money from qatar to bpi. Is it possible? Thanks!

  56. Hi jennifer, yes, it’s really sad that most banks charge for inward remittance fee, even BDO and other banks, specially if the money transfer is bank to bank. The charge is also higher than what they publish on their fees list. How much did BPI charge you? On the BPI list of fees, inward remittance fee for wire transfer is $6.50 for dollar accounts and 150 plus 10 plus .30 for every 200 and fraction for doc stamp.
    I’ve observed that when I pick up remittance via Xoom in dollars and Moneygram in pesos over the counter at BDO and Metrobank, I don’t pay any charge.

  57. Hi Miss Nora, I was sending international money transfer from Commercial Bank (Qatar) to BPI Philippines. I paid the service fee in Commercial bank, however, the amount I have sent to my BPI account was also deducted with another service fee. Thank you and awaiting for your response.

  58. Hi Allen, yes. Your sender should have a BPI bank account (either peso or dollar account), so he/she can go to BPI and apply for wire transfer to NCB Saudi Arabia.

  59. Hi Ms. Nora, Just want to ask you. Can we receive money thru bank to bank transaction. From Philippines to Saudi Arabia. BPI(Philippines) to NCB(Saudi Arabia) account. Please Advise. Thank you! Best Regards!

  60. Hi Nora, are these data still updated?. I’ll be going to Oman this year for work, and I’m checking on possible remittance services to arrange, with respect to the fees, do you have any idea on how much is sending money to the Philippines on a BPI account should cost?. Thanks.

  61. Hello , i am here in saudi arabia(jeddah) and i would like to open an account in bpi.would it be possible to do it here?

  62. I have a problem with ENJAZ, I believe it is a BPI correspondent bank also. I tried sending money to the Philippines but the recipient ‘s name is misspelled. I tried to change and they said wait for 2 days.3 days passed already but still my relative in the Philippines didnt receive anything. It is really inconvenien because I live far from city. I cant follow up everyday. What to do? Who can I contact?

  63. Hi Edelyn, sorry BPI Direct does not yet offer account opening for those in Saudi Arabia. Only those in Bahrain, Hong Kong, Italy, Spain and UAE and those in UK (BPI Europe). If you like BDO, you can ask if you can open a BDO Kabayan account at any of these banks with remittance partnership with BDO.

  64. Hi Ismail, what is the name of the company that developed your condo? If it’s Avida Land Corp., ask the bank and bank account no. of Avida Land Corp. http://www.avidaland.com/contact-us Usually, it would be a BPI account no. since BPI and Avida belong to the same parent conglomerate. If it is Avida, then send your payment to the bank account name Avida Land Corp. and account no. and never deposit to the account of an individual person. You should also have a reference no. that usually identifies the name of the condo project and your condo purchase account.
    You can go to Al Rajhi, Bank Al Bilad Samba or National Commercial Bank and make your wire transfer to the bank account of Avida Land Corp.

  65. Hi i am saudi citizen and i bought a condo in philippine how i can send the money on total to philippine or even to the company Avida

  66. Hi,

    Im working now in Dammam Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I tried to withdraw from mostly all of the atms here having counter part with CIRRUS. I never had my transacation since the machine never validates my account. Please let me advice where I can have my cash withdrawals. I really need cash now.

    Thanks
