BPI Correspondent Banks in Saudi Arabia, Middle East

There are BPI correspondent banks in Saudi Arabia and other parts of the Middle East for OFWS sending money to the Philippines.  BPI has partnered with these banks so that you can send money through them.

To send money to your family or any recipient in the Philippines:

1.   Go to any of the following banks, and apply for a Wire Transfer.

Wire Transfer is sometimes called telegraphic transfer, bank to bank money transfer, or SWIFT transfer.

2.  Fill out the wire transfer form.  You will write:

  • Name of Recipient
  • Name of Recipient Bank: BPI or BPI Family
  • Name of Branch and Address of Branch
  • BPI or BPI Family Account Number
  • BPI SWIFT Code or Address: BOPIPHMM

*Use the same SWIFT Code for BPI Family.

*SWIFT means Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication.
*SWIFT is the same as BIC – Bank Identifier Code.

BANK CHARGES:

  • You will pay a Transfer Fee to the Correspondent Bank.
  • BPI also charges a Service Fee:

-between 150 to 200 pesos for deposit to a peso account
-$6.50 for deposit to a dollar account

The following are the BPI correspondent banks and their SWIFT Codes.  You need a correspondent bank’s SWIFT Code if you’re far from a correspondent bank and you make a wire transfer in a non-BPI-correspondent bank. In this case, the transfer of funds would be from the non-correspondent bank to the correspondent bank and then to BPI.

INTERNET BANKING:

You can enroll your BPI or BPI Family account in Internet Banking so you can track
your remittance online while you’re abroad. Enroll while you’re in the Philippines because you need to activate your online enrollment in a BPI ATM. Your family members can also enroll their accounts online.
