Send Money to the Philippines From Australia

What is the best way to send money to the Philippines from Australia

Cost of transferring Australian Dollars to the Philippines

When looking at transferring money between countries do you look ONLY at the FX rate quoted, or the NET effect of the FX rate AND the the FEE charged.

When comparing rates, I was told by one Money Transfer Companies Agent that they offered the highest FX rate and they were much better than the other options. The particular agent offered both Moneygram and Ria. I went in asking for a Moneygram transfer, and they told me that Ria was much better with a higher rate.  They didn’t like giving me the net rate after charging fees.

They said Ria was better than Moneygram as Ria had a higher FX rate, however, the NET result for $100 cost was:

$A100 with Moneygram was 3,170.60 php to the recipient.
A$100 with Ria was 2,943.60 php to the recipient.

The recipient via Moneygram would have got an extra 7.7% MORE than with Ria.


Actual NET FX rates at 1st February 2016

The following are actual rates at Noon 1st February 2016 as a guide to comparing money transfer services.
Normal Banks are excluded as they are way too expensive.

Larger Amounts such as $10,000 can get a rate today equal to:
3,328.69 PHP into Philippine Bank Account. This can be checked at the Foreign Exchange tab on the right of this page.

The rates for a cost of A$100 including all fees, at Noon 1st February 2016, are:


3,171.60 PHP cash at agent  (Cost $96 + $4 fee = $100.00)


3,073.63 PHP   (Cost $92 + $8 fee = $100.00)


3,073.63 PHP cash at agent (Cost $92 + $8 fee = $100.00)
3,073.63 PHP into Philippine Bank Account (Cost $92 + $8 fee = $100.00)

Western Union

2,988.21 PHP in cash at agent (Cost $90 + $10 fee = $100.00)
3,151.01 PHP into Philippine Bank Account (Cost $95 + $5 fee = $100.00)

Ria Financial

2,943.60 PHP in cash at agent (Cost $88 + $12 fee = $100.00)

The BEST FX rate of the Money Transfer examples above is 33.45 php to the A$
BUT.. That option had the highest fees, and ended up as the lowest NET exchange rate.

The WORST FX rate of the Money Transfer examples above is 33.0375 php to the A$
BUT.. That option had the LOWEST fees, and ended up as the BEST NET exchange rate

The rank of the 7 Options above is:

  1. 3,171.60 PHP Moneygram cash at agent
  2. 3,151.01 PHP Western Union into Philippine Bank Account
  3. 3,073.63 PHP OrbitRemit cash at agent
  4. 3,073.63 PHP Worldremit cash at agent
  5. 3,073.63 PHP Worldremit into Philippine Bank Account
  6. 2,988.21 PHP Western Union cash at agent
  7. 2,943.60 PHP Ria Financial in cash at agent

Previous Comparisons

Actual Examples at  31 Jan 2016 at 11.30am, with a cost of $100 including fee, to send money to the Philippines:

33.126338 PHP with $4 fee
Receive Amount 3,180.13 PHP

33.4 with $7.00 fee
Receive Amount 3106.20 PHP

33.3279 with $8 fee
We Payout PHP 3,066.17

1 AUD = 33.2023 PHP with $10 fee

Larger amounts however, such as $10,000 plus, can obtain much better rates than this, at about 3,300 php per $100.

Bank ATM Limits in the Philippines

Bank ATM Limits in the Philippines

A selection of the major banks in the Philippines, showing the daily ATM limits.

Virtually all the banks that I have seen, have a maximum withdrawal of 10,000 pesos per transaction. But it is not uncommon for some people to do two or three withdrawals at a time, to get out what they need.

My maximum was 3 withdrawals one after another, at 10,000 pesos each, from the PSBank in Feb 2015.

PNB ATM Limits (Philippine National Bank)

Php 10,000.00 maximum withdrawal limit per transaction

PSBank Savings Account Types

The main PSBank savings accounts in the Philippines

The three main regular type of savings accounts with PSBank are:

PSBank ATM Savings
PSBank Regular Passbook Savings
PSBank Passbook with ATM

The PSBank ATM Savings requires a minimum maintaining balance of PhP2,000, otherwise a monthly fee of PhP300 will be charged.

The PSBank Regular Passbook Savings requires a minimum maintaining balance of PhP5,000, otherwise a monthly fee of PhP300 will be charged. To earn interest you need a minimum Daily Balance of PhP5,000.

The PSBank Passbook with ATM requires a minimum maintaining balance of PhP5,000, otherwise a monthly fee of PhP300 will be charged. To earn interest you need a minimum Daily Balance of PhP5,000.

For children there are the PSBank Kiddie and PSBank Teen Savings Account.

The PSBank Kiddie Savers Account is a savings account for children from 0-12 years old

The PSBank Teen Savers Account is for teens 13-18 years old.

Neither of these two childrens accounts require a maintaining balance, and the accounts earn interest regardless of the balance.

Bank Account in the Philippines for a Foreigner

How can a Foreigner get a Bank Account in the Philippines?

Some Philippine Banks do not open Bank Accounts for Tourist Visa holders, but some do.

Requirements may be different at each bank, but all will need at least:

  • Two valid photo IDs (EG: Passport, Driver’s License, ACR-I card).
  • 2 copies of 2″x2″ Passport type Photo.
  • Proof of address in the Philippines. (EG: Condo Rent statement)
  • ACR I-Card.

Which Philippine Banks will open accounts for Tourist Visa Holders?

I can say that these TWO banks will, as I did open accounts with them while on a tourist Visa.

  • PSBank (This has more branches)
  • Allied Savings Bank

Other Banks that I have read that will open accounts for Tourist Visa Holders:

  • RCBC
  • BDO
  • BPI Express Online

Inter-Bank Funds Transfer (IBFT)

Transferring funds from one bank to another in the Philippines can be done using an Inter-Bank Funds Transfer (IBFT) option.

One of the ways to do this is using participating banks in the “BancNet” system, and this allows real-time transfers 24 hours a day, Monday to Sunday! (Real-time = The amount will be deducted instantly from the sending account and added instantly to the receiving account.)

This can be done online, (PC or mobile phone), or at an any BancNet-affiliated ATM.

A service charge of P25.00 will be debited to the senders account, for every IBFT transaction.

There is no limit on the amount that can be transferred between accounts.

The participating banks (at August 2013) for this particular service are:

  • Allied Bank
  • Allied Savings Bank
  • Asia United Bank
  • Banco Filipino
  • CARD Bank
  • China Bank Savings
  • China Banking Corp.
  • China Trust
  • Citibank
  • City Savings Bank
  • Citystate Savings Bank
  • DBP. Development Bank of the Philippines
  • East West Bank
  • Enterprise Bank
  • Equicom Savings Bank
  • Green Bank of Caraga
  • HSBC

  • QCRB. Quezon Capital Rural Bank

HSBC Banking has an excellent page to show how ATM transfers are done using the BancNet ATM system: www.hsbc.com.ph

This is the method to Transfer Funds using an ATM:

  • Insert your ATM card.
  • Enter your Personal Identification Number (PIN).
  • Select Fund Transfer.
  • Select the Bank account of the receiver.
  • Enter the account number of the account you wish to transfer funds to. (Double check the number)
  • Select type of bank account to be used (Savings or Current)
  • Enter the amount you want to pay.
  • Take your transaction receipt, after it has been confirmed.

Bank Codes

There are THREE common bank identifying codes used internationally, and these are: BRSTN: Bank Routing Symbol Transit Numbers for Major Banks in the Philippines....

SWIFT, BRSTN and CHIPS in Philippine Banks

There are THREE common bank identifying codes used internationally, and these are:

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  http://www.chips.org


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.

Expressnet was founded on February 14, 1986, when the ATMs of Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) and its subsidiary, BPI Family Savings Bank, the founders of Expressnet, were connected for the first time.

Current Member Banks (2013) using Expressnet as their Primary Network are:

  1. Banco de Oro. Also a member of Megalink and BancNet.
  2. Bank of the Philippine Islands. BancNet also show Bank of the Philippines Islands as a Primary Network
  3. BPI Family Savings Bank. BancNet also show BPI Family Savings Bank as a Primary Network
  4. BPI Direct Savings Bank. BancNet also show BPI Direct Savings Bank as a Primary Network
