  4. About opening a BDO OFW account, yes, you can apply for a Kabayan account at some of these remittance partners. Ask them. About weekend opening, it's most likely that many are open on weekends because they know that OFWs work during the week.

  5. Where can I update my kabayan peso savings passbook here in taiwan?

    1. Updating BDO Kabayan Peso Savings Passbook in Taiwan:
      Sad to say, you cannot have your passbook updated in Taiwan because there's no BDO branch in Taiwan. You can have your passbook updated only at a BDO branch in the Philippines.
      If your atm card has a Mastercard or Visa logo, you can make a balance inquiry at a machine displaying the same logo as yours (Mastercard or Visa).

    1. About maximum outward remittance from Taiwan or inward remittance to Taiwan: For individuals, the maximum outward remittance is US$5 million per year per person.
      Each remittance company has its own maximum remittance limit per transaction. Western Union's maximum per transaction is US$15,000. Bank wire transfers have no maximum limits per transaction.

  7. Hello nora tamba. Can i use my bdo kabayan remittance as a savings account? And how much is the maximum money to put in the kabayan account?? Thank you hope you answer my question

  8. Hi Daren Dalisay, yes, you can use Kabayan as your savings account. Kabayan is actually a savings account. When your Kabayan account no longer receives a foreign remittance, it becomes a regular passbook savings account, and will require a 10,000-peso maintaining balance.
    You can put as much money as you want in your Kabayan. There's no maximum limit. Of course, when you've saved half a million or one million, it will be better to transfer some to a time deposit to get a bigger interest rate.

    1. Withdrawal using passbook:
      Sorry no. If passbook is used, you should be the one withdrawing.
      Your family member can withdraw only if you have given them a BDO withdrawal slip with your signature and the signature of your Authorized Representative.

  10. Hi good day mam. Thank you for your reply. One more question? Can i use my atm card to check the balance of my bdo asenso kabayan as my savings account here in Taiwan.?

    1. Hi Daren:
      Does your atm card has a Mastercard logo? Did you change your ATM PIN at a BDO atm machine here in the Philippines? If yes, you can use your card to make a balance inquiry at an atm there that displays a Mastercard logo. Balance inquiry fee is 1 US dollar.

    1. About remittance to BDO Kabayan and withdrawal:
      Yes, they can withdraw over the counter using their passbook. They fill up the withdrawal slip. Sometimes their IDs are required by the teller.
      They can also withdraw from any BDO machine using their atm card.

    1. about status of BDO savings account:
      By BDO's policy, your account should still be active, as the 12-month period for at least one remittance is not yet over. But to be sure, ask someone in the Philippines to deposit 100 or 200 pesos to your account over the counter. If the deposit is accepted, it means your account is active.

      Delete
    2. Later on, enroll your account in BDO online banking. Enroll a mobile phone no. that can accept calls/texts from the Philippines. Enroll in BDO online banking while abroad

  15. Kabayan reactivation May 23, 2016
    hi mrs nora, Can I reactivate my kabayan savings account? It's almost one year this July 216 that I have not deposited. I opened it July 2015. What should I do to reactivate if it's already closed?
    ANSWER:
    If we count 12 months from opening, your Kabayan should still be active. Did BDO tell you it's already closed? If it's already closed, sorry you're not allowed to reactivate it. You can open another account. You can try asking here: BDO Contact Page. You can also see BDO phone nos. on this page.

  17. Hi mam!I was going to Taiwan this October and I want to open kabayan peso account. May I know the possible requirements and also for online banking requirements to enroll?

    1. Hi william, just bring your passport and another ID, 2 ID pictures, your OEC or any proof you're going to work abroad plus 100 pesos. After you get your atm card and activate it, immediately enroll your account online. Activate your online banking enrollment also through a BDO atm. Enroll a mobile phone no. that you're planning to use with international roaming, or that you plan to use abroad. BDO uses one-time-password (sent through texts) for online money transfers. But you can use challenge questions for login (not OTP) if your plan is to check your balance inquiry only. So remember your answers to your challenge questions when you open your account.

    1. Hi arbeboy: Tiningnan ko sa Google Map at ito ang pinakamalapit sa iyo na BDO partner: Pinoy Express Huan Feihei Trading Co. Ltd. 143 Chien Kou 4th Rd Kaohsiung City. Sabi it's 1 and 18 mins daw by train or by bus. Kung mahal ang fares diyan, at merong Moneygram diyan mismo sa Tainan, diyan ka na lang sa Moneygram. Puede mo namang tanungin ang rate nila bago ka magpadala.
      Sa England, around 600 pesos yong Moneygram remittance fee for 12k pesos na padala for Cash pickup at any Moneygram outlet here in the Phils.

    2. Yes, Moneygram is a partner of BDO, so puedeng deposit to BDO account.
