What is different between enrolling while in the Philippines and enrolling while abroad?
If you are enrolling while abroad,
. choose the option: Outside the Philippines
. include your country code and area code when you write your mobile phone number
(Example: 639171234567, 639054338888)
. write the city and country where you are
. preferred time to be called by a BDO officer
. You register your Philippine mobile phone no. that has international roaming service,
or a foreign-registered mobile phone that can receive texts from the Philippines.
