Here’s a handy cheatsheet on helpful tips for departing and arriving passengers:Departure Fees & TaxesAirport terminal fee — Passengers flying from Manila, or a domestic flight from Cebu, do not have to pay a terminal fee at the airport. The terminal fee should already be included in the airfare when you purchased your plane ticket. All other airports in the Philippines require each departing passenger to pay a terminal fee (passenger service charge) after flight check-in, and before boarding. The terminal fee charged selected Philippine airports ranges from P50 to P200 for domestic departures and P550 to P700 for international departures. This fee is paid in cash, in Philippine Pesos only.Philippine travel tax (International flights only) — Citizens of the Philippines and selected foreign passport holders on international departures are required to pay the Philippine Travel Tax at the airport. The full fee is P1,620 for passengers on economy class plane tickets, and P2,700 when flying in first class. Non-immigrant foreign passports holders who have stayed in the Philippines for less than 1 year, do not have to pay the Philippine Travel Tax if they are: visiting for business, for pleasure, or for reasons of health; transit passengers.

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. First time ko.. Magkanu babayaran kong travel tax, and do i need to pay terminal fees?. Mejo nervous kc aq as a first timer eh,, sana matulungan m ko.. Saka do i need to fill up embarkation card and where to get it ba… Your reply is going to be a good help.,Reply Marcos Detourist saysFebruary 23, 2017 at 5:27 pmP1,620 po yung travel tax per person for economy class tickets. Sa airport po yan binabayaran. Kung galing ka Manila Airport, hindi na kelangan mag bayad ng terminal fee sa airport kase nabayaran na po yan sa ticket.Yung embarkation card before arriving in Singapore, usually dini-distribute po yan during the flight. Sakali wala sa flight mo, naka lagay lang yan sa immigration checkpoint sa Singapore.Safe trip Lovelie!Reply Jane Nisperos saysMarch 5, 2017 at 5:43 amHi, Next week is my departure going to Saudi and I visit my hubby. How much to pay the terminal fee? ThanksReply Marcos Detourist saysMarch 9, 2017 at 5:00 amIf you are departing from Manila. There is no terminal fee charged at the airport. The fee is already paid for when you bought the ticket.Reply Jason Wright saysMarch 17, 2017 at 5:15 amHello Marcos.
