Airport fees / Travel tax in Phillippines for US citizen

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I would like to ask how much fees waiting for me departing Philippine airport NAIA 3?

I bought my ticket here in US through expedia and says taxes and fees cost $544 (included on what I paid). I'm not sure if that includes the travel tax / airport fees in Pinas.

Thanks po!

Some airlines are charging you the tax when you buy the ticket. You need to read all the charges contained within your ticket to determine what fees you have paid. If in doubt call the airlines or Expedia. There are two fees one for 1,650 and another for 550 pesos.

This topic has been discussed in two other threads. Look on the main page or second page of this forum for additional information.

Highly unlikely the exit fee was charged with the airfare being it was bought through Expedia.

You will need to pay the P 1,620 fee for travel tax. And of course the terminal fee of P 550

Hi, Do I still need to pay the P1620 fee even I'm US citizen?

No, not unless you stayed in the Philippines over a year.

As Greenbaum said, some airlines are including the terminal fee already and it appears all will soon. Here's a ABS-CBN story about that:

It will be interesting if they get this implemented so it is included with all airfare purchases.

:rofl: Yup....Another Government trying to make it easier to take more money. It will be a mess because there are to many "if's" with all the different visa's and OFW's and Seafarer's. This one is going to be a nightmare. They have already been hauled into court and showed they can't get out of the gate without a major snafu.
