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..

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.
