I visited the metrobank branch where i opened my account then i ask the bank worker who assisted me to open my atm internationally because i am going out of the country. She said "it is open now you can use it on atm with the mastercard logo". now i am in srilanka having a problem how and where to get money for my stay. Its not that easy also for me to receive money from western union. I hope you can help me out here..
