How to Open a Sterling or Dollar Account with Philippine National Bank (Europe) Plc


  1. You will need to complete and return the Account Opening form in person to Philippine National Bank (Europe) Plc. A member of our staff will go through the form with you and answer any question that you may raise.
  2. You must take something with you to confirm your identity. We can accept ANY ONE of the following signed IDs/documents:
    • A current and valid passport
    • Full UK photo driving license
    • EU National identity photocard
  3. We require a proof of address. We can accept ANY ONE of the following:
    • Latest utility bill (no older than 3 months)
    • Latest bank statement
    • Local authority tax bill
  4. We require a minimum initial deposit of Sterling £100, $200 if it is a US dollar account to open the account. USD deposits are subject to cash handling & cheque clearing charges

These types of accounts should be remittance-linked, that is the account opened should be used to transfer funds to the Philippines at the very least once a month otherwise a fee of £15.00 will be charged for every credit made to the account. Once your account is approved, you will be assigned an account number. You can then proceed to operate the account. We do not issue a bankbook, but we will send your bank statements quarterly by post. You will be given a receipt for every deposit you make.

We reserve the right to refuse any application to open an account if in our judgment the application is not suitable to maintain sterling or US dollar account with us.
