BDO Correspondent Banks for Sending Money to the Philippines

Updated Oct 13, 2018

Here’s a list of BDO correspondent banks for Filipinos, OFWs and other persons abroad who want to send money to the Philippines through a WIRE TRANSFER or TELEGRAPHIC TRANSFER to a BDO account.

In many cases, wire transfers or telegraphic transfers are more expensive than other remittance or money transfer services, so if there are no valid reasons why you need to use wire transfers, check if there are other ways to send money to the Philippines in your place of work, business or residence.

Accredited money transfer services could be cheaper, and also faster, and at the same time as secure and as safe as the banks.

If you’re sending to a BDO client, you can check if there are BDO Remit partners or BDO remittance agents in your area.

Other options are MoneyGram and Wells Fargo ExpressSend, which are both BDO partners. You can also use Western Union, but use it only if you’re depositing to a BDO account, and not for cash pickup at a BDO branch.

If you need to use a WIRE TRANSFER to send money to a BDO account, you need the following information:

  • BDO Swift Code is BNORPHMM. This is used for all BDO branches around the Philippines.
  • Name of your recipient, spelled exactly the same as the name on his/her BDO account
  • BDO account number of your recipient
  • Address of your recipient
  • Address of the BDO branch of your recipient (some banks require complete address; others require just the country and city)
  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your bank account number (Most banks require that you have an account with them before you can send a wire transfer.)
  • Amount to be sent
  • Telephone numbers of both sender and recipient (required by some banks)

Note about BDO routing code:

If your bank abroad requires a BDO routing code, tell them that the Swift code is enough, as all wire transfers to BDO pass through one BDO branch (the Metro Manila BDO branch that handles wire transfers).
