immigration Fee in Cebu

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance is coming her finally. She will be flying from Cebu to Korea then to Seattle as a POE. I was wondering if any of you have gone this rout and where to pay the travel/immigration fees in Cebu. I am thinking that they will ask her to pay when she pays her terminal fees but i just want to make sure.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Fees are being added to your ticket by the airlines so look over your fees so your not paying twice.

Travel Fees:

Travel Tax/Exit Fee for all those immigrating: 1620 Php (currently) Can be paid at the airport if its not included with the purchase of your airline ticket. Counter is staffed 24/7 at NAIA for all terminals.

Minors (from 2 years and one (1) day to 12th birthday on date of travel)

Terminal/Airport Fee: 550 Php (currently)

TIEZA launched on July 23, 2014 the credit and debit card payment system for travel tax NAIA Terminals 2 and 3.

The service is open to VISA credit cards and to locally-issued debit cards (these are your regular ATM cards covered by Megalink and Bancnet.)

Paying your travel tax online:

Beginning now you can pay your travel tax online with a ATM card or Credit Card. This Site allows you to pre-register and pre-pay your Travel Tax before your departure. For more information use the link below.

Thanks for the reply but NAIA is the airport in Manila and she will not be stopping there. NAIA is Nanay Aquino International Airport. She is flying direct from Cebu to Korea. I sent her money to pay the immigration fees already so i was hoping that she could pay in Cebu without having to pay it online. if not i will pay online.

She can pay at the Cebu airport. She goes to her airlines ticketing counter that she will use for check in and they will direct her for each step she must take to board her plane. Be sure she ask the ticketing agent about the fees being paid when the ticket was purchased, again so your not paying twice.

This is an easy process for her. Stay supportive, but don't worry she will figure it out by asking questions. At this point, there is not much more you can do but be supportive. I hope she has safe travels.

Exit fee is the same no matter what airport. Terminal fee may vary.

Again thanks for the information. i do understand that the fees for immigration are the same and that the terminal fees may vary. Money is not the issue, we have that covered. I was wondering where she will go pay since every attempt to get on the website to pay, my computer just showed it was unable to load. I did however, in the process of my frustration and not getting the answer i was looking for, stumbled upon a site the said she can pay at the MCIA Travel Tax unit in the international departures area in the airport at Cebu.

Thanks for all your help everyone.

Just send your fiancee the money, it will take asking one guard where the counter is for paying the Exit Tax to get it handled. I have never flown out of Cebu so don't know that airport.

Hello , Congratulations to both of you..Your fiance and I have same route, I flew from Cebu to Korea then to Seattle as my POE. The time I checked in my baggage I asked the incharge where to pay my travel tax so she give me the instructions where to go. Then after paying my travel tax which is the amount is 1,620p, I ask the incharge again where to go next, so she instructed me. Then I fall in line for boarding pass i think, then after that the payment for the terminal fee which is the amount is 750.00p. If we don't know what to do, it's better to ask people especially the people who is working on the airport. Okay Godbless. I hope she have safe travel..
