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.
