DEPARTURE

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Gema is scheduled on a flight for sept

I used UNITED miles to book and she will be traveling on UA flights the whole way.

I understand she needs to pay a TRAVEL TAX and departure terminal fee which is not included in our tickets.

Are there any holidays in September that would require her to arrive on an earlier day to handle the Travel tax as their booth is closed on Holidays?

Also are there any procedures she needs to follow aside from getting this receipt? She can use the flight ITIN, the receipt, her passport and VISA docs to get checked in and get a boarding pass correct?

Travel tax window at the NAIA is open 24 hours 7 days...they do not close even if it is holiday here in the Philippines...she will be informed by the airline check in personnel to pay first the travel tax before they will check her in, so she pays the travel tax first, go back to the airline check in and she will be given the boarding pass.

She shouldn't have any problems on United or paying the tax. I actually checked my wife and step daughter in online 24 hours ahead of time, but that's because I was travelling with them and their tickets were tied to mine. She (or you) could possibly do the same. She can get the Boarding Pass at the airport.

Just a heads up when travelling United. In addition to NAIA's screening, US Bound passengers (next stop is Guam) have to do a secondary security screening at the gate (carry on baggage check, metal detector wand, pat-down, shoe check).

hi...i am going to use UNITED AIRLINEs too...how did you reserved the ticket? Because my husband tried to book for ticket but due to restriction, he was advised for me (the beneficiary) to buy the ticket here in PI. He will just send the money for that. Why is it that they didnt allowed him to buy ticket using his bank account?

On a related note, can the travel tax be payed early, as in arriving at the airport the day before your flight and paying it for the next days flight?

You don't have to pay it at the airport, even though its rather easy to do there.

I'm thinking at the airport the day before upon arrival to avoid the lines the next morning for a morning flight.

I doubt she's arriving in the same terminal.

My question wasn't so much of a "where " to pay travel tax, it was "can" it be payed on another day before the day of travel, as she will likely have an early flight, and may have to get the CFO sticker in the morning. We just want to save any time possible. There was another post where, from their experience, the CFO sticker was no problem, it was the line for the travel tax that almost made her late for the flight.

You can pay the tax and fees thru your travel agent, or opt to pay at the airport. The times I went thru, I just paid at the terminal, not a huge deal, as long as you arrive 2-4 hours early as you should for all international flights. But IIRC, 3 hours was more than enough time to go thru everything (minus the CFO which you guys are trying to do). And while I did not do so, I would imagine that if she has a ticket in hand, she could easily pay the day prior at NAIA.

Well actually your question was about where, as you wanted to pay it at the airport upon arrival. Then someone posted they didn't think you could pay at the other terminals.... so I did the copy/paste from the link I gave you.

I'm thinking at the airport the day before upon arrival to avoid the lines the next morning for a morning flight.

The link provided info for terminal 1 - 2 & 3 as to where you can pay the travel tax. ;)

P550 is the terminal fee that is never in the price of the ticket.

Enjoy your flight!
