  2. I am interested in opening banking in the Philippines for real estate development. What are the procedures with Wells Fargo

    1. Hi Al, sorry but there’s no Wells Fargo branch in the Philippines. Citibank is the only US bank that has a branch in the Philippines offering services to both corporate and consumer customers in the Philippines. Bank of America and JP Morgan Chase Bank cater only to corporate and institutional clients.

  3. I have check Wells Fargo can I in cash it there in Wells Fargo Makati branch? If not where should I incash it? For deposit i don’t have dollar account in Philippines.

    1. Hi Julie, sorry, yong Wells Fargo sa Makati ay representative office lang. Hindi sila nag-o-operate as a regular bank. For promotions lang sila. Kung malaki ang amount, open a US dollar account at BDO or BPI or any other Philippine bank, then ideposit mo ang check mo. Ang usual clearing ng US check ay 3 weeks to one month.

  4. Hello, can we request a bank draft payable into Hong Kong dollar for payment of police clearance ?,,please help.

    1. Hi Jane, did you mean HK police clearance? This Wells Fargo in the Philippines is not a regular bank. It’s only a representative bank. It does not issue bank drafts. If someone mentioned Wells Fargo bank draft, most probably they mean Wells Fargo in the U.S. If you have a relative or friend in the U.S., maybe you can ask them to lend you money through a bank draft payable in HK dollars and send the draft to you by courier. But this might be impractical if courier cost almost equals your travel cost to HK. I’ve read online that other banks here in the Phils issue only bank drafts in HK dollars if you have been their checking account owner for at least 6 months. Ask your bank where you have maintained an account for a long time, whether savings or checking. Or maybe it’s more practical to just travel to HK to apply for your police clearance. Or maybe you have a trusted friend in HK who also has a checking account with a HK bank.

    Hi there! If I open a checking account at Wells Fargo ihere n Anchorage Alaska. Can I send money to my BDO dollar account or PNB peso account? Is so, how? Thank you.

    1. Hi Maria, yes, checking account is okay, but you can send only to your PNB peso account. It’s Wells Fargo that will convert your dollars into peso. First, visit your nearest Wells Fargo, then, to be sure, ask if they offer ExpressSend. Fill up forms and register your PNB account as your receiver. For your next remittances, you can use your online banking.
      If you like to send dollars to your BDO dollar account, use the online remittance service Xoom. Xoom allows receipt or credit in dollars.

      1. Pwede bang landbank account ditto?

  6. Cynthia Villasis

    Do you have ATM services for withdrawal of money from your US based Wells Fargo debit card account?

    1. Hi Cynthia, walang Wells Fargo ATM dito. Pero karamihan naman ng foreign-issued ATM cards na linked to Mastercard or Visa ay puedeng pangwidro dito sa mga local atm machines dito. Meron lang atm withdrawal fee na 200 pesos or more per atm withdrawal

  7. Hi! I’m already here in the PH and I can’t send my money thru xoom also I can’t send money thru zelle. I don’t know what to do, to get my money in debit card wells fargo? Can you help me?

    1. Hi Elaine, have you tried withdrawing at the ATMs of BPI, BDO, Metrobank, HSBC or Citibank? The charge per ATM withdrawal is 250 pesos or more. Withdraw in peso amount. Try the maximum atm withdrawal amount (10k or more) so you can save on the transaction fee. Choose an ATM inside a bank so that in case there’s a problem, you can ask the bank.
