You don't need PDOS. You only need the GCP seminar at CFO. Since you already have the sticker in your passport, you are good to go.

You have your CFO sticker, and visa... you are good to go. PDOS is not for you. ;)

You will need to pay the travel tax Php 1620 and the terminal fee Php 550 .

Travel tax is paid at the airport, At Terminal 3 Travel Tax counter is near Gate 1 entrance. NAIA it is at the front between the luggage scanners.

If the airline ticket was purchased in the Philippines the Travel Tax is usually included in the pricing, but if your fiance bought it online then you will need to pay it at the airport.

check the ticket for a charge of P 1620 for the travel tax, very possible it was collected with the ticket purchase

Welcome to America!!! :dancing:

You need to pay the $165 or your green card. Visa is a thing of the past.
