OFWs Can Open This Landbank Savings Account While Abroad

Updated January 14, 2018

You can open this special Landbank savings account for OFWs while abroad, if you are in a city or country where there is a Landbank Overseas Representative Officer.

This account was previously called  Overseas Filipino ATM Account, offered to OFWs.
Now it is called Bagong Bayani ATM Account.
It's an atm savings account.
  • Opening deposit amount is 100 pesos.
  • Monthly maintaining balance requirement: Previously, it was 100 pesos.
       Now there's NO maintaining balance requirement.
If you open your account abroad, you will be given a generic card by the Landbank Overseas Officer upon application. Your name is not embossed on the atm card.

If you open this account at a Landbank branch in the Philippines, you will be given an atm card with your name embossed on the card.

Here's a list of Landbank Overseas Representative Officers in the following countries in Asia and the Middle East:

Landbank has deleted the email addresses of its Overseas Representatives, so this means Landbank wants you to CALL.

  1. Papanu po mg open account ng atm card by landbank tapos po ipapadala sa pilipinas para sa misis para ndi na cia mahirapan kumuha ng pera sa cebuana atm to atm po

  2. Carlos maricek Feb 17, 2016
    How can I open an atm card account by landbank then send to my wife in the Philippines so she'll no longer be inconvenienced by getting money from cebuana. atm to atm po
    Hi Carlos, you can ask your wife to apply for a Landbank atm savings account at the Landbank branch nearest your residence in the Phils. You can then send money directly to your wife's atm account through Landbank remittance partners in the city where you're working.
    Landbank's atm account requires a maintaining balance of only 500 pesos -- this means always have 500 pesos in the account. To open an account, your wife needs to present 2 1x1 ID picture and at least 1 ID (postal ID, Philhealth ID or original copy of marriage contract).
    If you live in one of the cities listed above, where Landbank representatives are, yes, you can apply for your own OFW atm account and send to your wife, but you will need to send the atm card through a courier that accepts atm cards for delivery. Note though that there's always a risk in sending an atm card through a courier.

  3. i have opened this Overseas Filipino ATM Account and was trying to enrol it online however its not going through with a pop up message "Hot card, Retain Card", how do I proceed?

    1. About Landbank online banking enrollment:
      Sorry I'm not sure about Landbank's policy, but I guess you're not allowed yet to enroll your account as you have not yet validated your atm card at a Landbank atm machine

    2. You can also email or call the Landbank representative with whom you opened your account.

  4. Ung sa atm card po na bagong bayani savings account.. San po b banda ung account number ko nklagay? Ung 10 digits number po o ung 15 digits na nsa baba?? Kc ung unang hulog ko ng pera ung kinuhang account number ung sa baba . tpos ung 2nd na hulog q ung sa taas nmn ung kinuhang account number.. Pro sa pangalan q lhat.. Ppasok b un sa savings ko??

    1. Where on my atm card can I see my Landbank account number?: Ang iyong account number ay yong 10 digits sa baba ng name mo. Yang account number ang isusulat mo sa deposit slip whenever you deposit money.
      Yong nasa taas na 16 digits, yan ang iyong card number. Ginagamit lang yan na pang-track sa atm card mo. Sa ibang banks, ginagamit yong 16-digits kapag machine deposit at para sa mga cash cards na walang account number.
      Do you mean it was the Landbank teller who wrote your 16-digit card number? Dapat pumasok kasi yong teller na mismo ang kumuha nong number. Maybe she just wrote your card number for another purpose, parang note lang. Pero kapag savings account, dapat account number ang ginagamit for deposits and withdrawals.

  5. Ano po ang dapat kong gawin pra po ung account ko ay mlalagyan nng savings kc my account n po ako s landbank philcoa gusto ko po mg savings habang andto po ako s dubai.

    1. Hi Ferlyn, send money to your Landbank account. Go to a Landbank remittance partner there in Dubai. Bring your IDs and your Landbank account no. Here's a list of Landbank remittance partners in Dubai. Just look for the branch nearest you.
      Kelan mo inopen yong Landbank account mo? OFW passbook account ba ito? Merong maintaining balance na 5,000 pesos. Bagong Bayani atm account ba? This has no maintaining balance requirement.

  6. Hi good day,
    May i know if this bagong bayani savings account can be registered online? So i can view my existing account and balances?
    Thank you!

    Thank you!

  8. Paano kung below 100 pesos ang natira sa atm na pinapadalhan ng mister ko na nasa barko ngayon, papasok pa rn ba ang remittance nya kahit below 100 na lang ang laman ng atm nya na may initial deposit before na 100 pesos?

  9. Paano kung below 100 pesos ang natira sa atm na pinapadalhan ng mister ko na nasa barko ngayon, papasok pa rn ba ang remittance nya kahit below 100 na lang ang laman ng atm nya na may initial deposit before na 100 pesos?

  10. Good morning po,may overseas atm po ako kaso Lang mag 2 years ko na po di nahulugan,deactivate na po yon?thank you

    1. ATM account with no remittance: Yon bang OFW atm-only account yan? Walang maintaining balance requirement yan, pero nado-dormant if without transaction within 24 months. If you need to save in that account, and you're sure wala pang 24 months na lumipas since you opened it, ask your family to deposit 100 pesos sa account mo na yan. Kapag tinanggap ng teller yong deposit, at merong receipt, ibig sabihin, active pa yong account mo at puede mong padalhan.

  11. Hello good evening,

    Im currently working here in dammam saudi and i really want to open a philippine bank account(savings). Can you help me sir? I already contacted the contact person/representative which mentioned above but i got no response from them. Please need feedback�� thank you!

    1. Hi Beth: Siguro yong Landbank representative, hindi na sumagot kasi nasa Dammam ka. Kelangan kasi makita ka in person para maka-open ka ng account. Pero sana naman sinagot ka.
      Anyway, try this BDO remittance partner: Al Rajhi Banking,
      Dhahran St., Dammam (near Saudi British Bank) and open a BDO Kabayan account. If they're accepting application, they'll forward your application to BDO in the Phils. You'll receive your passbook and atm card in about a month. You will then be able to remit to your account, but you can't use yet your atm card. You have to activate your ATM card in the Phils.

  12. Hello please Help . I want to deposit into my bagong Bayani atm saving account my problem is I haven't opened yet in Atm Machine at Philippines when I was there 2 months ago. Is it still safe for me to send my remittance even not checking my ATM at ATM machine ? Because it says there when we had our pdos open" you can just open it to ATM machine after 2weeks".

  13. Hello po.ano po mga requirements sa pag open ng account.at san po yong address nyo dito sa Kuwait?

    1. Open a bank account in Kuwait: Here's a list of BDO partners in Kuwait. Ask them if they're offering assistance in opening a BDO Kabayan account. If yes, they will forward your application to BDO Philippines and you'll get your passbook and atm card maybe after a month.

    2. Paano po mag open ng account dito sa singapore?

  14. How can I check my balance in bagong bayani savings account ?

  15. Hi i have an bagong bayani atm saving account last nagamit q sya nung may nung ngwithdraw aq ng pera..pede pb mgsave money kahit n ang balance eh below 100..?pede ko pb sya magamit for saving money

  16. Hi meron po akong bagong bayani saving account pero mula nong pag open ko hindi ko pa na change pin ito at nahulugan by next month mag 1year na cya. Pwede ko po ba hulugan ito ngayon para hindi ito ma close?

  17. Hi Mira: Sure mo ba na wala pang 12 months ang lumipas since you opened it? If you're sure, yes, you can send money to it. Kung hindi ka sure, ask your family in the Philippines to deposit 100 pesos to it over the counter at any Landbank branch. Kung tanggapin ang deposit, it means your account is still active, and you can send money to it. Use a Landbank remittance partner to send money. Where are you so I can post a link to Landbank partners

  18. hi good day po,nandto po ako s malaysia at gusto kpo magopen ng acconut,may paraan po b para maicheck ko ang aking balance habang hinuhulugan ko xa habang andto po ako?slmat po

  19. Hi, good afternoon. I have opened an account already (Landbank Overseas ATM card - Bagong Bayani). And I have deposited also some amount in it and i personally saw from one money exchange here in Dubai that my account has been active. My concern is that, how can i register to your online access, what's the website and what to click. I have tried to open landbank webs but i don't understand where to sign up. I just want to register so that I can access my account from time to time and for me to be updated regarding my account. Please help. Thank you very much.

  20. Hi,i have opened an acct. Already LAND BANK OVERSEAS EMPLOYMENT ATM CARD-bagong bayani, how can i confirm that my account is active thank you,

  21. Hi. I would like to know what documents are needed to open a Landbank overseas ATM account

  22. Ask ko lng po.san banda ang account number ng bagong bayani savings bank yung sa tas or sa baba?

  23. Hi po,

    Ask ko lang po if pag nag open account ako dto ng landbank, pwede yun magamit at mapg transferan ng money from Pinas? At pag nasa Pinas n po ako..magagamit ko din ba un sa landbank naten dun?

    Salamat po..

    1. I suggest you use another bank. It's so difficult to activate Landbank account unlike BDO, Metrobank or BPI. They would require a beneficiary to also open a Landbank account before you can transfer money to them or activate the online payment. Hassle, mas convenient gamiting ung BDO OFW account.
