You can buy more than US$ 30,000 (or its equivalent in another foreign currency) only if you have the necessary documentation accepted by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP).

Corporations may also enter into swap transactions. Your company can purchase a currency value spot, with a simultaneous sale of the same amount of the same currency value forward.
