Yes, a foreign national can open a PDAX account.
In compliance with domestic laws and know-your-customer (KYC) requirements set by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) of the Philippines, PDAX requires a foreign national who wants to open an account to present his/her Alien Certificate of Registration (ACR) to verify the legality of his/her stay in the country.
He or she must also be able to comply with all the requirements necessary to open a PDAX account. These include providing valid IDs and documents that are needed for KYC purposes to verify a user's identity.
For foreign nationals, PDAX accepts passports issued by their country of origin as a valid form of identification but not driver’s licenses issued under the same condition.
