After the application process, the bank officer will give you a deposit slip that confirms your initial deposit transaction. 

Claiming Your BDO ATM/Passbook (Waiting Period)

Usually BDO will release your ATM or Passbook after 7 days (1 week). So, you should go back to your bank after a week and don't forget to bring your deposit slip to claim your ATM or Passbook savings account.

  • If you want to access your BDO account online, you should enroll to BDO online banking. With this facility, you can inquire your account balance online, pay your bills (utility, landline, electric bills, etc.) online, or transfer money to other bdo accounts online. You can also load your mobile phone online with this facility.

Happy banking with Banco de Oro (BDO)!

My husband and i wants to open an account, is it possible to have an account with two persons?
Like for example, me my husband wants to have an account, but we join in one account, so we both have an access in that account.
