On Sunday we can say. " Welcome to the Philippines" where the world Will change, for you.
Yup, as long as the airport has power so the pilot doesn't miss the runway...
It's OK We don't get Night flights here. If you ain't here by 4.30pm you won't be coming Sunday
Was thinking more like air to ground communication, radar, you know, them there electronic gizmos they use to know who is where when and where they are going.
FYI: China Bank is also affiliated with BPI in Philippines.
Airport is in Sibulan Hurray! Power outage bulletin did not mention Sibulan
The manager at BDO Robinson Mall will help you set up a charge card linked to your savings account which is linked to you checking account. You only need to show 2 months of your cellphone bill with your address on it.
I exchanged a few messages with my former BPI branch manager. The BPI correspondent bank in America that my military pension passes through is Mellon Bank, but that really doesn't mean anything. BPI has many affiliated banks in America that they use for various purposes.
My friend emphasized that BPI is an accredited bank for government pensions -- apparently not all banks here are accredited.
Anyway, to understand whether or not BPI can help with any given situation I suggest just going to the main BPI branch in Dumaguete (it's on Perdices) and speak to the branch manager, Sir Raymund Pinero. I do not believe you need to queue -- just turn to the right after you enter the bank & look for him at the first or second desk.
Hi nwlivewire: I completely agree with Doug Casey! Great source!
You should go speak to Sir Raymund Pinero at the main BPI branch here on Perdices. He is the branch manager. Setting up a DFAS deposit may not be something they do every day, but he will be able to do it. I will message him that someone may be stopping by to speak to him about setting up a DFAS deposit.
Your list is accurate, but no need to go to Hong Kong. BPI can set up a USD passbook account to receive your DFAS direct deposit. I have been using this process for years and the money appears in my account here as quickly as it would appear if DFAS was sending the money to a bank in the U.S. Well, actually, DFAS does send it to a BPI correspondent bank in the U.S. -- and it immediately appears in my BPI account here. Magic! :-)
