  1. Hi ma’am/sir:
    Ask lng k lng po kng hnd pa nclose ang atm kna BDO kabayan savings kc last may 2013 k hinulogan pero hanggang ngaun hnd kna nahulogan ulit at nsa akin ngaun ang atm k dto po ak qatar ngaun.

  2. Hi fahima, based on BDO rules, hindi pa siya closed, pero hindi na siya Kabayan account. Regular passbook account na siya. Kung merong balance, dapat paabutin mo agad ng 10k or more ang balance para hindi ma-penalty for falling below the maintaining balance. Contact BDO:

  3. Gnon b kc dti yn pci bank tpos noon napalitan ng bdo kya sbi ng bdo ireplace dw zero maintanance balance kc refferal ng ofw ang pag open k.

  4. Hi fahima, yes, zero maintaining balance ang Kabayan, basta meron kang at least 1 remittance from abroad in 12 months. If 12 months pass without any foreign remittance, the account is converted into a regular passbook account, which requires a 10k maintaining balance. Pag meron kang balance, dagdagan mo para maging more than 10k.

  5. Hi bigboy, yes, you can send directly to your BDO account or your family’s BDO account. Make sure your account name and no. are correct.

  6. Hi, this is Sheena Nunez from Philippines, I just wanted to ask what remittance branch should I get a money transfer from muntazah Qatar, because my friend send me money worth 8,500.80php by al-sadd branch/ city exchange and I don’t know what branch is should I get the money, I tried in Western Union but they say its invalid number
    Pls help me where to remit the money. Thank you. Sheena Nunez.

  7. Hi sheena, try getting your remittance at BDO. Tell BDO the remittance is from Doha, Qatar and the remittance company is City Exchange. Bring your reference no. and IDs. Upon entering BDO, ask guard where the counter for remittance is.

  8. Hi mam/ sir. I have a kabayan savings account and Im currently residing in Qatar, I wonder how can I check my account’s balance I brought with me the passbook at atm card. Another thing is it possible to use the atm card as a debit card here? Thank you .

  9. Hi Jeanie, did you change your ATM PIN when you were in the Phils? If yes, then you can try making a balance inquiry (1 US dollar charge) at an atm machine with Mastercard logo (check if your atm card has a Mastercard logo). If there’s no Mastercard or Visa logo, then use this BDO Contact Us page to inquire.

  10. panu po malalaman kung may makukuhang retirement lump sum na walang id dahil lahat ng pinasukan ko po hindi ako nabigyan ng id number

  11. Hi. why again can’t I open at bdo online my banking acct with bdo? my account is again locked. Can’t see my remaining balance and if I remit to it again. like to see if it’s credited or not. tnx

  12. Hi, Just wanna ask. I’m from Philippines and I have my own Savings Account. I have a customer in Qatar. Can he send his payment to my Account (Savings Account) from Qatar even if the account is not kabayan account? Thank you sa response :)

  13. Hi Joemar, yes, your customer abroad can send money to your account even if not Kabayan. All savings accounts in commercial/universal banks and in most savings banks in the Philippines can receive money from abroad.

  14. Is there a remittance partner here in al dhakira al khor? Is there a charge if bank to bank? I have bdo kabayan ATM in the Philippines THANX

  15. Hi ma elena, please just see the partner nearest where you are. There’s a remittance fee for bank to bank, or from remittance company to bank.

  16. Hi Ms Nora. How about my dollar account that I have not deposited to for more than 2 years. Have it become dormant? How can I claim it as I’m abroad?

  17. Hi Yan, since you have not deposited to it or withdrawn from it for more than 2 years, then your account has become dormant. If you had more than $500 in your account more than 2 years ago, then your money is intact. But if you had less than $500, it’s most likely that you were deducted by $5 each month for 24 or more months for below-maintaining-balance penalty, and $5 each month after 24 months of no deposit or withdrawal. To restore your account to active status, email BDO and ask how you can restore your dormant account to active status while you are abroad.

  18. hello ms nora, I wish to open a kabayan savings here in qatar. I had kabayan savings in 2012 but wasn’t able to remit to it. I inquired when I got back there in 2014 but was told it was already closed. Can I open a new account? My previous atm is with me but the passbook is in the Philippines

  19. Hi emily, here’s a list of BDO remittance partners in Qatar. Ask if they’re offering Kabayan account opening. You’ll get your atm card and passbook after maybe a month. Make sure to remit to your account from abroad at least once a year to maintain it. You can use the BDO Remit Status Inquiry to track your remittance. Then when you get back here, enroll in BDO online banking and activate your enrollment while here in the Phils.

  20. thank you ms nora, can somebody in pilipinas deposit to a kabayan savings account opened abroad? I have a small business in pilipinas and I plan to open here abroad an account to which my partner can deposit my money.

  21. good evening! my brother is in qatar and hes planning to transfer his savings to my acct through online banking. do we need activation of his account here in philippines before he can open his savings account online to transfer money?

  22. Hi ed, yes, he’s the one who will transfer money, so he should enroll his account in BDO online banking while abroad, and then enroll your account to his account, so he can transfer money. I’m not sure about the approval of the addition of your account to his account if it’s still the old way — it might require him to print his online enrollment and send it to BDO through postal mail in order to get approval. Of course, you know, that all these are easier when done in the Philippines, as activation is done using the atm card at a BDO atm machine.

  23. Hi, I have a BDO cheque coming from Philippines. Apparently, only me can encash that, but I am here in Qatar. If the cheque will be sent to me here, can I remit it to Philippines via Al Dar?

  24. Hi Erwin, do you have a bank account in the Philippines? Your family can deposit your BDO cheque directly to your bank account here. I think Al Dar won’t accept your BDO cheque because it’s not encashable there in Qatar. If you don’t have an account, try opening a BDO Kabayan at a BDO remittance partner there, See list above. Processing will take about a month.

  25. Gudpm po mam ask ko lang po ang kapatid kupo nag padala nang pera thru aldar exchage pwedi kuba makukuha sa bdo??? At pwedi ba ung id ko tin id lang po???

  26. Gud evening can I open a bank account with bdo here in Qatar? Where can I open here in alkhor Qatar? Is there a payment for opening? What are the requirements?

  27. Hi Darwin, sad to say, there’s no BDO remittance partner there in Alkhor; they’re all in Doha. But check the list of partners above, and see if they have a branch in Alkhor, then ask. Bring your Qatar ID, or passport if you hold it, other IDs. Bring the Qatari riyal equivalent of 100 pesos or a bit more for opening.

  28. magandang gabi po.. ask lang po aq. Nagbukas po aq ng account ONB or One Network Bank Pantukan, ComVal Branch. Nandito po aq ngayon sa Qatar. Sabi po ng teller pwd q po daw mapadala ang pera q through BDO. kng mapadala q po yun sa BDO, pano po yun mapasok sa ONB ATM q? at pano q po mlaman na napasok na sa ONB ATM q yung pera?

  29. Hi, how can I track if the money I sent was remitted? I sent via AlDar Exchange – Parko Mall Mamoura branch to BDO Pinas on April 26, 2016. Until now, April 29, 2016, the money hasn’t been received yet. We checked all the details, all correct. Why is it that the money has not arrived? Thanks po.

  30. Hi Jhen, you can track here: (check “Allow pop-ups from bdo website”, if your PC/browser/phone does not allow pop-ups. Did you send to a BDO account? or did you send for cash pickup? The money might need to be picked up at the branch. Ask your recipient to ask at the branch or call BDO

  31. How many days before I can receive the money sent from qatar to the philippines? Via deposit bank to bank. Thanks

  32. Hi koda, should be within 2 to 3 business days, but it can reach 5 to 7 days in some cases. If it’s been 3 business days, call or visit your branch.
