      Footers poured and blocking has started.  They are working fast on thos. They keep me busy as I'm the one who sets the block line and makes sure all is level and lined up. This 2 days work.

      Then BPI is the right choice. W-9 is not just for business.  It's for FATCA reporting.  As long as you don't keep more than $10k in total holdings at any time you don't have to worry about it.

      On common advice I went to set up checking with one of the three big banks. I wanted to have access to branches wherever I went and also good online banking. What a hassle it was. Both Metro and BDO won't allow a checking account until you have a savings account with them for six months. They apparently want to use your money and provide no services for it. BPI allowed me to set up checking but it was difficult. I had to justify my reason for wanting a checking account. They kept saying cash is how things are done in the Philippines. At first they wanted a letter of endorsement. After much complaining a supervisor said I could set up an account. Then the agent insisted that my middle name was part of my first name in the way she was reading the U.S. passport. Then I was forced to fill out a W9 form which is used to get a tax ID for a business in the U.S. I explained this but they insisted that I fill it out anyway. That actually makes me pretty nervous. I got the peso account which is what I wanted for local transactions. I was told that dollar checks cannot be deposited into it.

      I think so too.But what surprises me that he was able to leave Singapore at all. When I fly from Europe to Asia, the airlines always want to see a return/onward ticket. Gesendet von meinem M2101K6G mit Tapatalk

      Thank you Cookie for the information on Mactan Island, it sounds like no power or internet yet.  The Expat had to leave because the brother in-law in the compound was threatening to kill him, plus he had some minor I think health issues that needed to be addressed.
      Now this same brother in-law is blocking people from visiting his wife within this compound, he can't even contact the PNP or Municipality because nobody seems to be up and running.
