  1. Goodday po.my husband is in jeddah. Makakapagopen p po b q ng cash card if ang expected remittance q e sa katapusan ng july. I dont have rimittance yet. Panu po magopen??

  2. Hi Glenny, puede namang ang remittance ay cash pickup sa bank kung wala ka pang bank account. Puede kang mag-open ng cash card basta meron kang valid IDs at ID picture plus mga 200 pesos. Sabihin mo gusto mo yong cash card na merong name mo para makatanggap ng up to 25k pesos. Ang BDO cash cards kasi merong limit ang perang mailagay. Yong walang name sa card, up to 10k pesos lang ang puedeng mailagay. Yong merong name, up to 25k pesos. Kapag gusto mong walang limit ang laman, mag-open ka ng regular account. Sa BDO yong regular atm account nila, kelangang meron doong 2k pesos doon na hindi mo winiwidro; maintaining balance niya yon. Ito yong list of remittance partners ng BDO sa Saudi Arabia. Kung BPI naman, ito: BPI Remittance partners in Saudi Arabia

  3. hi,, ask ko lang,,meron po ako dati cashcard sa BDO peo hinde pangalan ko ang nakalagay sa ATM, pangalang po ng Company bank rural ang nakalagay sa atm ko.ngayon hinnde ko na nagamt, 4yrs ko na hinde nagamit ung atm at hinde na rin nalagyan kc nag resign na po ako since 2013 of may. ngayun gusto ko po mag open nang bago account sa BDO with name ko, kaso, andto ako sa saudi ako ngayun , dko alam kon paano mag regsterd ulit sa BDO thru online. . pwde po buh ako makahinge ng idea. kong paano magregestred thru online..

  4. Hi raunchy, yong company cash card mo na yon ay matagal nang closed. About opening a BDO account there, here’s a list of BDO remittance partners there in Saudi. Tingnan mo kung ano ang malapit sa iyo, bring your iqama, ID photo and some money, and ask is they can assist you in opening a BDO Kabayan account. 100 pesos lang ang opening deposit, pero merong fee yong assistance nila (sorry I don’t know how much). You will return to get your passbook and atm card after about a month. If you already have your passbook, you can then send remittance to your account (better if you send peso, mas favorable ang conversion rate diyan, if deposit to account). But you cannot yet use your atm card there. Kelangan munang ma-activate mo yang card dito sa BDO atm in the Philippines.
    This is how to enroll your Kabayan in BDO online banking. I hope you can share your experiences later on
