may disadvantage po ba kung magstay na lang sa local bank? Parang nabasa ko puwede ka naman magwithdraw ng funds kahit hindi mo itransfer funds mo
Ngwork ako sa SG for 2 years and kakamigrate lng nmen ng hubby ko dto sa OZ last Aug 2012. Sa SG pa lng ngopen na kme ng account sa westpac through online banking. Ang kagandahan nito, walang charges ang pg-open ng account and no deposits needed. Mgfifill up ka lng ng forms online then after ilang days, my account ka na sa kanila. Para makatipid sa bank transfer fees, bitbit namen in cash ung allowable amount pagpasok mo dto sa OZ. Then the rest, finund transfer ko na lng from DBS to Westpac. My option den na iwithdraw mo na lng through ATM dto basta my maestro/cirrus logo ung singapore atm mo. SGD 5 ang charge per withdrawal so imaximize mo na lng ung pagwithdraw mo dto ng cash. Good luck!
Hi @psychoboy That time (August-Sept 2012), ngkaron ng promotion ang dbs/posb for overseas fund transfer. Free of charge ung fund transfer kahit mgkanong amount. Wala nmang naging problema nung ngtranfer ako. Unfortunately, tapos na ung promo ngyon. You can check dbs/posb website for the charges. Ito ung website http://www.dbs.com.sg/personal/payments/overseas-funds-transfers/outward-telegraphic-transfers/servicecharges/default.page? Sa pagkakaintindi ko, mas ok ung dbs (than citibank) dahil wala ng additional fee of 1/8% of your transfer amount tulad ng nabanggit mo.Good luck!
