    1. About sending money from Germany
      Yes, you can send money from Germany to the Philippines or Hongkong.
      If you use a bank wire transfer in Germany, your receiver should have a bank account in HK or Phils.
      If you use a remittance company, your receiver will get it at the remittance partners of that company. If Western Union or Moneygram, your receiver gets the money at Western Union or Moneygram outlets.
      If you have a BDO bank account and BDO online banking, you can transfer money from your BDO account to other accounts using the online Send Money service. Charge is 100 pesos. What is free is when you transfer from your BDO account to an enrolled BDO account through Funds Transfer (After login, select Financial Services).
      Before going to Germany, it's wise to enroll your account in online banking while you're here in the Phils because usually activation of enrollment is done through the atm machine.

    1. About remittance from Germany: YES, ask your sender to send money for CASH PICKUP at PNB, BDO, BPI or other banks. You can also pick up SENT MONEY at Western Union, Cebuana, MLhuillier, etc. It all depends on the remittance service and its partners in the Philippines. Your sender will give you a reference number and the amount sent, so you can write it on the claim slip. You will also write the sender's name and address or just the city and country.
      Ask also the name of the remittance service because banks or partners here ask the name of the remittance service, as they handle several remittance partners, and it will be easier for them to track the remittance.

    1. Hi Lyn, BPI’s list of correspondent banks is missing in their new website, so I can’t check the list. But I think you can use Deutsche Bank, as Deutsche Bank has a branch in BGC, Philippines, so a wire transfer to BPI via Deutsche Bank will be easier.
