On this article, you’ll learn the requirements and the exact steps you need if you’re opening a savings account in Metrobank. It contains all the information you need to know to get started.
Metrobank is also one of the biggest bank in the Philippines and I’m pretty sure that most of our kababayans are also looking for information that could provide them a reference when opening a savings account in Metrobank.
Requirements of ATM Savings account in Metrobank
- 2 valid IDs
- 2 pcs. of 1×1 or 2×2 picture
- Php2,000 initial deposit amount
- Billing statement
- TIN number (in earlier part of 2016, almost all establishments doing financial transactions ask to require TIN numbers from their clients/customers)
Steps in opening ATM savings account in Metrobank
- Go to the nearest or your preferred Metrobank branch and advise that you want to open an ATM account with them.
- Fill up the form. Make sure you double check all the information before submitting it together with the initial deposit amount of Php 2,000.
- The officer in charge will then encode all the information to their system and will print a receipt or say a deposit slip for the transaction. That’s basically it! Asked them when you can claim your ATM card. Mostly it’s within 1 week.
*Please note that you need to present your deposit slip and a valid ID when claiming your ATM card. Make sure you have it.
Requirements of Passbook savings account in Metrobank
- 2 valid IDs
- 2 pcs. of 1×1 or 2×2 photo
- Php10,000 initial deposit
- TIN number
*Some Metrobanks branches needs or requesting to have barangay clearance or a copy of birth certificate. I suggest you bring one if you have. Or bring other valid ID and/or supporting documents you have.
Steps in opening Passbook savings account in Metrobank
- Go to the nearest or your preferred Metrobank branch and advise the teller that you want to open a passbook savings account.
- Fill up the form for application. Make sure everything you write is accurate. Make sure you double check.
- Submit the completed application form together with the Php10,000 initial deposit needed. On some Metrobank branches, they are giving option to have a free ATM card together with your Passbook. Meaning, one account with 1 Passbook and 1 ATM card. Really nice! Right? May sure you check with them.
- The bank officer will check everything and encode your information on their system. You just need to wait a couple of minutes and you’ll have your Metrobank passbook. And you’re done!
*The ATM card will be release after 5 days if you also choose to have it together with you Passbook.

Dolly Ann says
I am in japan but i want to open a savings account in metrobank,is it possible?
What should i do?
I’m not sure Ms. Dolly because you need to submit the application form personally to the bank. Try to call metrobank if they have options for OFW. TY!
hi sir is it possible that i can open an account if i dont have tin id?

Hello, just wanted to ask if I could also open online banking in metrobank so I could check my money. I opened a savings account in metrobank. And when my sister ask them a favor to sign me up because there is a lot of questions need to answer before I could sign up. And they said there is no online banking. Could you pls give me an advise if the teller is right that there is no online banking for savings account? Thanks
Hi Pearl, please check this article: https://www.thinkpesos.com/5-easy-steps-to-enroll-in-metrobank-online-banking/
Ano po pinagkaiba sa atm at passbook
Mgkano din po ung chrage pag ng open ng savings account
Opening a new ATM account in Metrobank is such a hassle. My sister presented 2 government-issued IDs but they insisted that one of the IDs should bear her address. She brought her PRC ID and passport and both do not come with addresses. She also had supporting documents: receipts of the house rental (we are renting but no contract of lease/rent) and billing statements (though under the name of the property owner). They insisted that my sister also present a baranggay clearance as proof that she’s a resident in the area. What I don’t understand is why are they so strict with the address? It’s not like my sister’s applying for a credit card/line connection in which the address is a must to be able to trace the person in case of non-payments of services rendered? Plus, bank clients can transact in any branch anyway and don’t necessarily have to do transactions in that one branch where he/she opened an account….
Sad to hear that Janeth. Me and my wife experienced that on BDO. We’re asked to present brgy. cert ‘coz our IDs are not the same with our current address even though we presented multiple supporting documents and IDs. Might be a new policy.
sir d2 poh aq sa saudi pwd poh ba q mag open ng account gamit mga valid id q doon.. tpos ibang tao mag process
Juralyn Pagula says
Mine is easy in bdo.. I just showed them 2 valid i.d and NBI clearance. All have the same address.. no hassle. I got bank account and atm card after a week.
is it possible to apply for an atm savings account and credit card at the same time?
jo ann clementine estrada says
hello.sir mam,i would.like.to inform how to know my deposit at my.account cuz.im.here at taiwan i.cant contact my bank at philipins location at malhacan meycauayan bulacan so how could i know if deposited at my.account number..thanks sir, mam
Is that a passbook or savings account? If ATM, you can try to use members bancnet and megalink ATM machines and see if you can check your balance.
xzy gem says
i just want to ask do police clearance,nbi clearance and voter’s affidavit are accepted to open a savings account??
I think yes but but make sure it’s valid. 🙂
Patrocenio P Tacud, Jr says
I have a passbook savings account in Pasong Tamo south Branch Makati. I have already submitted my application form there since March 2015 for updating my signature since every year signature should be updated. So, when i made a withdrawal from my account in other branch at Legaspi street near greenbelt (here in makati) they charge me ₱50.00 as they said i have to update my signature. But i have already updated my signature in Pasong Tamo south branch. So, it is not my fault. They wasted my time and effort to fill out the form for signature…
Sad to hear what you’ve experienced Pat. :/
hi, question lang kung may pre approved CC din ba ang metrobank?and how much yung deposit so they’ll give pre approve.. thanks

may i just ask if its ok that the billing address i’ll use is not the latest one?
I am still a student and I don’t have the money yet for the initial deposit amount needed, but I want to open an account in metrobank. what can i do?
Save money via piggy bank or coin bakn until you can open an account. 🙂

Hi! I already have an account with Metrobank. The one without the ATM, because at the time I opened my account, I did not think I was going to need an ATM Card, as I already have ATM cards with other banks. Is it still possible for me to “change” my account to the one where they give me an ATM card? Please let me know. Thank you
Ms Jenny you can request an ATM for your account. Just go with the bank and tell them. 🙂
I love metrobank and I am waiting for the day that it will offer a savings account deposit with no maintaining balance.
i only have 1 valid i.d. is it okay ill use my nso to support my infos ? reply asap

hai how much is the charge in Metrobank coz I’m using One network ATM?
Atm savings account, if ever po magsavings ako nito my increase po kaya un savings ko yearly?
Yes, if you reached the balance to earn interest. And then the interest rates apply annually. Thanks!

Good am. I just want to ask. If i applied and open an account but not yet activated to metrobank, let’s say in alabang branch, can i ask for activation of my account in other branch, i.e. santa rosa branch? Please consider my question.
I want to open an account and honestly this is my first time. If i choose ATM Account, is it possible to link it to PayPal account? And can i also make a transaction and check the remaining balance with it over the internet?
Thank You 🙂

Tina I. says
Yesterday, I applied for a Debit/ATM card. I brought with me 2 government valid ID’s (Passport and PRC ID), billing address (Note: If you are just renting an apartment or the house you’re living in you need to get a Certificate of Tenancy from the landlord which happens in my case) and 2,000 pesos initial deposit. I have with me my NSO birth certificate but they didn’t ask for it. In addition to that 2 pcs of 2×2 pictures cause I read it here as well but no need. They had me signed an application form and cards to input my signature. After, 30-35 minutes, they asked me to sign in their logbook. And, they handed me my new and fresh Debit/ATM card. That was beyond amazing. Finally, I was given my ATM Pin. That easy. Metrobank Marulas Valenzuela Branch.
Thanks for the share Tina. God bless!
May nakalimutan po kayung ilagay na requirement sa pag open ng ATM savings account.
Mag oopen sana ako ng ATM savings account kaso hiningan ako ng billing statement which is hindi ko napaghandaan.
Kindly include it in your post so that other people could prepare it.
Thank me later.
Is it possible na ang atm ant passbook ay iba ang account number kasi po meron na akong atm tapos nag open ako ng passbook..akala ko kasi kung mag open ng passbok iba ang account number sa atm ko..
Bruno Vohl says
Today I tried to open an account at the Metro Bank in Tagaytay.
I had a current water bill, my passport with address in the Philippines, my visa documents and expat card, and my Philippine driving license.
After a long wait
She looked at my documents.
Then they said
Where is the receipt of their driving license
I said that was three years ago
I have not
Then we can not open an account.
They are always happy when they find something
That you can not open an account.
Hey Billy, Good day, may katanungan lang ako. Maibabalik pa ba ng Metrobank ang pera ko na more than P11,000 + kasi ging deactivate Nila account ko kasi more than 2 years na akong walang transaction sa account ko dahil naka focus Ako sa isa Kung account at dito Ako nakatira sa Australia for more than 3 years na. Meron akong 3 account sa metrobank, 2 passbook saving account including yong ging deactivate Nila at isang ATM Card. Isa akong loyal sa metrobank Pero ngayon parang nawawala na tiwala ko kasi ging deactivate Nila account ko without any conformation na kahit nag message nalang sa account ko kasi gamit ko ngayon internet banking. Isa rin Ako sa stock shares Nila na may binabayaran monthly na 5k automatic nag deduct sa isa Kung saving na may malaking halaga. Sa tingin mo po ba maibabalik pa pera ko. Sana mabigyan mo Ako ng kasagutan. Salamat at have a nice day.
tanong ko lang po problema po ba pag mali ang middle ko sa account name?
Hi Anna, you have to go back to the back to have that fixed. Thanks!
sabi daw ng friends ko na may account sa metrobank, kapag mag aapply ng ATM savings, pwede na makuha within the day of processing.
