Notes:

  • Your ID/s should not be expired and must include your photo.
  • Your ID/s must be authentic and reliable. The Bank officers/personnel may require you to present other IDs to be satisfied as to your true identity or that of the principal opening the account.
  • Please present your original ID/s to the Bank. For companies that submit copies of the original IDs, the Corporate Secretary should attest to their authenticity through a notarized Secretary's Certificate.
  • The validity/expiry of an NBI clearance is 1 year from the date of issuance.
  • The ACR I-Card is for foreign residents only.

Also, please note the additional requirements for the following cases:

a. Sole Proprietorship

The photocopy of the Business Name Certificate of Affirmative Business Name Certification with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is acceptable as long as you present the original document to ensure that the copy is an authentic and true reproduction of the original.

b. Resident-Foreigners or Aliens

While the visa stamp by Bureau of Immigration (BI) indicating the alien's point-of-entry is not a regulatory mandate, the same is an indicia for purposes of due diligence in establishing the status of the resident-foreigner or alien in the Philippines, and in ensuring that the individual has entered the country legally. To be acceptable, please present your original Passport and ACR I-card (for permanent resident or tourist of more than 180 days) as identification documents.
