When I worked in Perth ANZ had branches in Philippines so before you leave Perth open an ANZ Philippines account. If not I think BPI now has branches in Oz so you should be able to open this from Perth.

ARC? Do you not mean ACR (Alien Certificate of Registration). This is what people on a tourist visa requires to open an account here in the Philippines. You get an ACR on your second extension of 59 days.

Not all branches of bank enforce this, try a few you may get lucky. You say we, assuming your partner is a filipina there's nothing stopping her opening a joint account. You won't need an ACR for that.

We opened a BPI peso account here before we even left UK. BPI London sorted it. so if BPI do have branch in Oz, go talk to them. I Cannot find an Oz branch on the website - they say use Commonwealth Bank for deposits. As gazza-d says if your partner is Filipina just get her to open an account.

As previously said, I for one opened a BPI account on arrival in the Philippines. For me, it was a case of knowing a "friend of a friend".
