You sure every month and rm5.30?

I have cimb in 2013 and it charges annual fee of rm15 for atm card. Last year I opened one with ocbc and it charges rm12 annual fee for atm card. The atm cards can be used on any bank but there is a rm1 charge, except if used on own bank.

I went cimb, bukit indah with sg passport, and was rejected. RHB OK to accept Singaporean opening account and Maybank OK too.
Guess with the account and credit card Maybank, pumping petrol is so much faster and safer.

OCBC is walking distance from city square. The bill board is so big that you can miss when crossing the causeway.

Dunno what's the min. I opened one with RM400 and got atm card and internet banking on the spot. RM8 will be deducted for atm annual fee.

You only need passport.
