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.

Hi Good Day!

I would like to inquire about opening an account for ATM only, but unfortunately I don't have any ID, all I have is my NSO Birth Certificate and NBI Clearance. Is it okay if that's the only documents i can present?.

Hoping for your immediate response.
Thank you.

Hi, i just opened my account yesterday at BDO SM North Annex
I was just asked the following
* 2 Valid ID
* Landline number (for confirmation of address)
* P2,000 for deposit

They'll take a picture of you through their webcam, so no need to bring a 1x1 photo
They also have a xerox machine, no need to photocopy your id's
soo, yeah thats it.
