Flying out Manila to Hong Kong

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I wanted to know what taxes I have to pay when I leave from Manila for my self and my future wife. If their taxes to pay leaving from Hong Kong?

I can't speak for Manila but I have flown in and out of Hong Kong many, many times and have never had to pay a departure tax at the airport. Hong Kong does have a departure tax of $120HK($15US) but that tax has always been included in the price of my airline tickets. Also that tax does not apply to same day arrival/departures, so if you are arriving and departing Hong Kong on the same day, then the departure tax shouldn't even be included in the price of your airline tickets as it will not be applicable.

You each will have to pay the 750 pesos airport departure fee on the way to the gate after you get your boarding pass. Your fiancée will owe the Philippine citizen travel tax, 1,620 pesos last time that I checked. If you bought her ticket from a Philippine's travel agent or company, then you may have paid it already. Check your receipt. If you purchased her ticket online or in the USA, you probably have not paid it yet. You will need to pay it at the travel tax counter, before falling in line at the airline ticket counter.

There will be nothing to pay in Hong Kong, as it is just a transfer point.

Good luck & Ingats!

It's not a transfer because we are going their for our honeymoon and coming back to Manila. So I don't have to worry about 1640.00 only for her?

Exactly. The wife will still have to pay it, since she is a Philippine citizen, and is travelling out of the country. I have no idea what, if any fees, Hong Kong might charge as a destination or departure city. I have only been there on a stop-over.

Cheers!

$15 is just about right. That is what I paid about last month when I went to get engaged.
