So now that my fiancée has her visa and the CFO sticker she now has to pay travel tax? Does this have to be paid every time she leaves the Philippines or just this one time only? When I bought her ticket the ticket already included tax into the cost so this is additional tax? Thanks

Once she has a Greencard and if she stays less than one year then she won't have to pay it.

Travel tax is paid after staying in the Philippines continuously for a year or more.

 

Most airlines do NOT collect this tax when you are paying for airfare.  It can be paid a variety of ways.

 

TRAVEL TAX
   
    

Before exiting the Philippines (after receiving the visa and CFO sticker in your passport) there is Travel Tax to be paid.  This can be paid at the locations listed in the link below

Thanks guys for the information! So now we will pay the travel tax tomorrow but now was also informed there is a terminal fee we must pay? Is this true? These taxes and fees keep piling up and I’m not sure we have enough money to make it back to the USA uggg.

Terminal fee is included in the airfare, no longer pay this at the airport (this changed a few years back)

 

You can pay the Travel Tax at a variety of locations, plus online.
