Like any other banks in the Philippines, you cannot open or apply a BDO or Banco de Oro ATM account (or ATM card) without bringing the necessary requirements. Requirements to open a BDO ATM Account are listed below:
2 valid id's (original and photocopies):
Driver's License ID
NSO Birth Certificate
any other valid id issued by the Philippine Government...
Two pieces recent 1 x 1 colored pictures
P2,000 initial deposit
BDO ATM Debit Card (photo)
Take note: Concerning valid id's, make sure you bring at least 1 photo-bearing ID and another valid id. BDO requires you to bring a photo-bearing ID. If you don't bring that type of ID and you only bring non-photo bearing ID (such as NSO birth certificate, Baranggay Clearance, or Police Clearance), your application will not be accepted.
A bank like BDO want to verify your identity. That's why they need a photo-bearing ID.
