I fetched a friend from germany just yesterday and they had to go thru customs at mactan airport because they carried more than 10k EUR and they had to declare it on arrival. Told me its a lot of paperwork and it from landing to be out of terminal2 it took them 1 hour.
But it was no problem to bringt that amount of money.

Probably not. I do a DOLLAR wire transfer from my US bank to my wife’s PI PESO account at PNB. The exchange rate given by a foreign bank is likely better than a US bank.

Funny aside...my US bank has a banking presence in Manila. But the wire transfer goes from my US bank thru two other US banks and then to PNB. When I mentioned this odd practice they of course looked at me like I was the idiot. Fortunately it takes only hours...

Yes, PNB has a branch in N.Y. and L.A. and Metrobank has a branch in N.Y.
