Timeline

We flew into Manila yesterday (Sunday) and we were able to get CFO sticker at Terminal 3 on the 3rd Floor at the CFO.

We are scheduled to depart Tuesday to USA, and we told the CFO person that we were going to try to change flights and leave on Sunday.

So today instead of fetching a taxi and driving around Manila trying to get Sticker we are chilling in the hotel enjoying Manila.

We are staying in Makita near GreenHills Malls, Very nice area and good hotel.

Night and Day difference from staying in Ermita area near St. Lukes and USEM.

Upon doing some research you can get your CFO sticker (you must still take the seminar either at the Cebu or Manila locations) at Manila NIAI Term 1. The request that you call ahead 2-3 days,

CFO NAIA: 632-879-5685 or 02-879-5685

They are open from 5am till 12 midnight

CFO NAIA desk is at terminal one.. beside TIEZA travel tax desk.. between the entrance doors with the x-ray / conveyor machines..

I don't have any updated info on Term 3. Maybe Vol can update us with more details.

Yes, you must call ahead at least 3 business days and not counting holidays and make an appointment. There is limited staffing and I have heard they go from terminal to terminal to help with the stickers. So, YES call ahead.

Please report back your experience for your CFO sticker at the airport. It would help others with current information if anything has changed. Safe travels.

did you call 3days ahead before getting the sticker at the terminal?

Yes, But we went to airport 2 days before we requested sticker from airport CFO.

We were originally suppose to get ticket on Monday because we were flying out on Tuesday, but when we arrived at terminal 3 we went to 3rd floor where you pay Travel Tax and CFO is right next to them.

There was a CFO person working there, we told him were going standby that day and try to get of Manila on Saturday, and he went ahead gave her the CFO stamp on Saturday

It was a good thing and we were able to enjoy our last few days in Philippines without worrying about getting a CFO stamp on Monday.

Good luck

Thank you so much for responding.

I thought I can just go there and get the sticker without calling.

I will just go to the cfo office (not the one at airport terminals) and get my visa there since they will be open by Monday.

thank you again.
