About account opened at Metrobank Dong-gu South Korea branch: This account is an account based in South Korea, so if you're in the Philippines and you want to deposit to this account, there will be a transfer charge. If you like, you can open an account at a Metrobank branch here in the Philippines, and then you remit to it from Korea or deposit to it over the counter here in the Phils. If you're in Korea, just ask the Metrobank branch there if you can open a Philippine-based account there in Korea.

I really apreciate your prompt reply, nonetheless ,how much will be the transfer charge then?

Nora said...

About transfer fees: Sorry I don't know Metrobank's rates. They might also require you to have an account with them before you can ask for a wire transfer. It's better if you visit a branch and ask.
You can also send money to South Korea using Western Union (rates start from 800 pesos for a remittance amount of 10k)
