Foreign Banks in the Philippines

Updated March 2, 2018

There are 23 foreign banks operating in the Philippines as of March 2018:
    21 branches operating as universal and commercial banks
               (6 universal banks and 15 commercial banks)
      2 subsidiaries operating as commercial banks
  -----
    23 foreign banks


If you're thinking of using your foreign bank's facilities in the Philippines for ATM withdrawal, cheque deposit or other retail banking transactions, know that several foreign banks here do banking ONLY for Corporations, Government Agencies and other Institutions and DO NOT do consumer banking and DO NOT have ATMs here.
  • For ATM withdrawals, you can use your Mastercard/Cirrus/Maestro, Visa/Plus, American Express, or China Union Pay at other banks' ATMs here for a withdrawal fee of 200 or 250 pesos. KFTC and NYCE cards can be used at Bancnet ATMs.
    Enter your desired amount in Philippine peso. What will come out of the ATM are Philippine peso bills.
  • For foreign cheque deposits, you must have a foreign-denominated account (your cheque's denomination) here to be able to deposit a foreign cheque. Expect a clearing of around one month. There's a deposit fee.
  • For US pensioners, you can open a Philippine-based Direct Deposit account here in the Philippines.
  • For UK pensioners, you might want to open a BPI Europe account in London before coming here.
