BRSTN: Bank Routing Symbol Transit Numbers for Major Banks in the Philippines

This 9 digit code identifies the country, city, and name of your bank, and is the commonly used bank identifier code used among banks in the Philippines to transfer funds.

SWIFT: Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication. Business Identifier Codes (BICs) are often called SWIFT addresses or codes.

The SWIFT code is 8 or 11 characters, made up of:
4 letters: Institution Code or bank code.
2 letters: ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code eg: PH = Philippines
2 letters or digits: location code  eg:  the MM at the end of many codes = Metro Manila
The last 3 characters represent the local branch code.

CHIPS: Clearing House Interbank Payments System


Although these are listed below, it is always advised to contact your bank to check the code before using it to transfer funds.
A wrong, or outdated, code could cause problems with your financial transactions. Trust ONLY your bank.

Some banks use a routing number of another bank that they route transfers through. For example BRSTN: 021000021 is actually JP Morgan Chase in New York, but used for at least BPI Family Bank and PSBank.

  1. If you feel like sending $5 to buy me a cup of coffee, please click the donate button.

  2. I want to get the routing number for the dollar savings accounts with the PNB-San Pablo City branch. I called their telephone number, but unluckily nobody answer sent an e-mail request to the customer service of PNB-Main Office and hasn’t received a reply. When I went to my bank here in Illinois, they told me they need the routing number. Going to the PNB remittance center is not an option for a senior citizen like me who lives alone and has not driven for years. I am planning to wire transfer to my sister’s account. Thanks for your help.

    1. I find it odd that your bank, in Illinois, can’t get that number. I would have assumed that any bank would have access to all bank codes.

      Have you tried ringing the other numbers.
