There are some important things to know before you fly.This detailed guide answers frequently asked questions about Philippine airports and flights.Philippine Travel Tax and terminal feesFirst, here’s a lowdown on fees that you might have to pay at airports in the Philippines. Followed by helpful tips about individual airports.What is the terminal fee?The terminal fee should already be included in the flight ticket price upon booking, on all flights departing from Manila-NAIA Airport and nearly all Philippine domestic flights.You only need to be concerned about paying the terminal fee at the airport (after check-in/before boarding) if you’re flying via Clark Airport or departing on an international flight from Cebu, Clark, Kalibo, Davao, Iloilo, Puerto Princesa or any international airport except Manila.The airport terminal fee or “Philippine passenger service charge” is an airport tax/exit fee for passengers departing from airports in the Philippines. The terminal fee ranges from P50 to P200 per person for domestic flights or P550 to P700 per person for international flights. OFWs are exempted from paying the terminal fee at Manila Airport.What is PH Travel Tax?The Philippine travel tax is a fee imposed by the government for Filipinos traveling abroad. The full travel tax is P1,620 for passengers on economy class plane tickets and P2,700 when flying first class. As stated by Presidential Decree 1183, Philippine citizens have to pay the appropriate travel tax, regardless of the place where the airline ticket is issued or the form of payment.You need not worry about the travel tax if you’re a foreigner traveling in the Philippines on a short visit or simply transiting as this fee only applies to citizens of the Philippines, permanent resident aliens and non-immigrant aliens who have stayed in the Philippines for a period of not less than one year.These individuals are also exempted from the travel tax: Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), infants (2 years and below), and Filipino permanent residents abroad whose stay in the Philippines is less than one year. You can check TIEZA’s website for the full details on PH travel tax exemptions and reduced fees.See alsoHow to Book Cheap FlightsFebruary 28, 2018Follow these easy steps to find cheap flights & spend less on plane tickets.

The Philippine travel tax is mostly for Philippine residents.Reply gloria estocada saysMay 15, 2016 at 11:38 pmtaxinternational travel is 1,620 in pesos thats the full payment is it require to pay even after 6months you arrived in manila and you are going out again another 1,620Reply Marcos Detourist saysMay 16, 2016 at 3:37 amHello Gloria,If you are required to pay the PH travel tax, you may have to pay this fee for every departure regardless of the time between your flights. It is charged specifically for every plane ticket.

Hong Kong Airport Construction Fee – PHP 577.94 Air Passenger Departure Tax – PHP 770.59 – is this the travel tax? Security Surcharge – PHP 288.97 and i want to ask also , since im OFW am i exempted with this taxes (terminal and travel tax going to HK for holiday?)Reply Marcos Detourist saysFebruary 1, 2017 at 9:52 pmHi Kenshe,I’ll breakdown the list so it’s easier to go through them.PH Passenger Service Charge – PHP 491.07 – is this the terminal fee?This I believe is the PH airport terminal fee. There should be another item called the “PH PSC Value Added Tax: 58.93,” which usually amounts to P58.93. So, the total is the P550 terminal fee.This terminal fee should be refundable for OFWs with OEC.Air Passenger Departure Tax – PHP 770.59 – is this the travel tax?This is a HK$120 fee charged in Hong Kong, not in the Philippines. So, passengers applicable for the PH Travel Tax have to pay at the airport.If anyone reading can confirm, please do!Reply Lovelie rodriguez saysFebruary 19, 2017 at 5:12 amHi i am traveling to singapore next week.

Best to contact TIEZA to be sure.Enjoy your trip!Reply Luigi saysMay 14, 2017 at 12:12 pmThere seems to be a bit of a confusion (mix up) here … Under “Airport terminal fee” you wrote: “You do not have to pay the terminal fee if you are on a flight from Manila, Caticlan (Boracay), or a domestic flight from Cebu.” and again under “Popular Philippine Airports” you wrote: Cebu-Mactan (CEB) Domestic – Included in flight ticket. International – P750. But … under “Mactan–Cebu International Airport (CEB)” you wrote: “The Cebu Airport passenger terminal fee is P750 per person for domestic flights. If you are on an international flight, you do not have to pay the terminal fee since it should already be paid for / included in the plane ticket price, at the time of booking.” This is the total opposite of the first two. So which is correct? Also if you go international but is required to change plane, like Cebu to Manila, then Manila to Bangkok, do you have to first pay Domestic then International terminal fees or do you pay the International terminal fee twice? Once in Cebu (750) and again (as included in ticket) in Manila?Reply Marcos Detourist saysMay 14, 2017 at 5:17 pmThe first one is correct. Thanks for pointing out the error Luigi.Just did a mock online booking for a Cebu-Manila-Bangkok flight, only the P750 PH international terminal fee shows up on the receipt. So, you might have to pay the terminal fee (for international flights) ONLY ONCE & it’s already included in the total price, upon purchase. This assumes that the whole journey is on a single plane ticket, and not two separate tickets.If you booked a Cebu – Manila flight ticket, and another Manila – Bangkok flight ticket … You might have to pay the domestic terminal fee in Cebu, and international terminal fee in Manila. Both should already be included in the total price, upon purchase. So, you don’t need to pay at the airport. If both flights are on the same airline, on the same day, best to ask the airport/airline staff if you can get a refund for your Cebu-Manila terminal fee… If they are on different airlines & on different dates, you will need to pay both.You only pay the international terminal fee once.Reply Janyl saysMay 18, 2017 at 12:02 pmHello po, magandang araw pupunta po ako ng dubai by july… Aside from plane ticket, terminal fee and travel tax may babayaran pa po ba ako.

Passenger service charge usd 11, airport construction fee usd 12, airport passenger security chare usd 6, Air passenger departure tax usd 16, is this what they called travel tax and do we need to pay coz we’re on European passports? Many thanks if someone can answer our queries.Reply Marcos Detourist saysSeptember 22, 2017 at 9:00 amThe “travel tax” commonly mentioned on this page is the Philippine Travel Tax. It mostly applies to Philippine citizens traveling abroad and foreigners on long-term PH visa.If you are visiting the PH for a short time, you shouldn’t need to worry about it. It is paid at the airport not when you book your flight online anyways.Those fees you mentioned are probably mandatory airport/gov’t fees. So yes, you may need to pay all of them.Reply Jay saysOctober 3, 2017 at 10:59 pmHi tanong ko Lang poh if I need to pay terminal fee or travel tax ?

Everywhere you go, there is fee! Unlike in other countries they are not collecting any terminal fee fee from customer.Reply Marcos Detourista saysJuly 15, 2018 at 6:02 pmHi Trisha, all airports around the world charge terminal fees and taxes, you just don’t notice it because it’s already included in the airfare. As for the travel tax for international Pinoy travelers, PH Gov’t should really make an exception for ASEAN flights, which will encourage more intra-regional tourism activities/spending.Reply Rose saysJuly 5, 2018 at 11:09 pmDo I need to pay travel tax for domestic flight.
