Hi @travelwithkarla! My friend and I will be traveling to Korea this June and we want to visit Nami Island in the morning and go to the palaces in the afternoon. We planned to start the travel from Junso to Nami at 4am so that we can go back to Seoul and visit the palaces. But, we found out that there’s no subway or bus that can take us there at that time.

You can go to one palace in the morning, then travel to Nami Island by lunch time 🙂

Philippine Airports – Terminal Fee, Travel Tax & Flights Guide

Are you traveling in the Philippines or abroad? There are some important things to know before you fly.

This detailed guide answers frequently asked questions about Philippine airports and flights.

Philippine terminal fee + travel tax

Here’s a lowdown on fees that you might have to pay at airports in the Philippines. Followed by helpful tips about individual airports.

What is the terminal fee? Do I need to pay at the airport?

You need not worry about the terminal fee if you are arriving at any airport in the Philippines. The terminal fee should already be included in the flight ticket price upon booking for both domestic and international flights.

The airport terminal fee or “Philippine passenger service charge” (DPSC) is an airport tax/exit fee for passengers departing from airports in the Philippines. Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) are exempted from paying the terminal fee. The terminal fee ranges from P50 to P220 per person for domestic flights or P600 to P1,135 per person for international flights.

What is PH Travel Tax?

The Philippine travel tax is a fee for Filipinos traveling abroad. The full travel tax is P1,620 for passengers on economy class plane tickets and P2,700 when flying first class. You need not worry about the travel tax if you’re a foreigner traveling in the Philippines on a short visit or simply transiting as this fee only applies to citizens of the Philippines, permanent resident aliens, and non-immigrant aliens who have stayed in the Philippines for a period of not less than one year. You can check TIEZA’s website for the full details on PH travel tax exemptions and reduced fees.

PH Travel Tax Online Payment

Selected airlines including Cebu Pacific offer the option of paying the Philippine Travel Tax online on their website. This is highly recommended if you want to skip lining up at the airport. You can also pay the travel tax online on the  TIEZA Online Travel Tax Payment System (OTTPS) website.

Manila-NAIA International Airport (MNL)

The Manila Airport is the busiest airport and the main international gateway to the Philippines. Commonly referred to as “NAIA” or Ninoy Aquino International Airport, it is located in the cities of Pasay and Parañaque, within the Metro Manila area in Luzon Island (Northern Philippines).

Check the breakdown of taxes and fees on your booking receipt or when booking the flight ticket. The terminal fee is usually labeled as PH Passenger Service Charge, Domestic Passenger Service Charge or International Passenger Service Charge. There’s usually also a corresponding Aviation Security Fee (ASF) and separate Value Added Tax for the terminal fee.

Do I still need to pay the terminal fee, even after paying the travel tax?

Yes, the terminal fee and travel tax are separate fees. If you’re not exempted, then you need to pay both.

Do I need to pay the terminal fee and travel tax when I arrive in the Philippines?

The airport terminal fee and Philippine Travel Tax does not apply to arriving passengers.

Don’t leave yet. There’s more!

Hi. I am budy from Indonesia. I would like to ask you related airport tax terminal fee and philippines travel tax. I booked the ticket from Jakarta to Manila (transit). And then Manila to Seoul. I am foreign passport holder. Should I pay airport tax terminal fee and phillipines travel tax? Thanks ☺

May 15, 2016 at 5:53 pm

If you have a single journey ticket, I’m not sure if you have to pay, but if you are changing airlines or if you’re required to check-in for your next flight then you may have to pay the international terminal fee. The Philippine travel tax is mostly for Philippine residents.

taxinternational travel is 1,620 in pesos thats the full payment is it require to pay even after 6months you arrived in manila and you are going out again another 1,620

May 16, 2016 at 3:37 am

Hello Gloria,

If you are required to pay the PH travel tax, you may have to pay this fee for every departure regardless of the time between your flights. It is charged specifically for every plane ticket. You can read more info about it at http://tieza.gov.ph/travel-tax/ .

hi, im an OFW , me and my mom and bb will travel to HK for holiday via CEbupacific airways in the tkts it says passenger service charge and TAXES AND FEES PH Passenger Service Charge – PHP 491.07 – is this the terminal fee? Hong Kong Airport Construction Fee – PHP 577.94 Air Passenger Departure Tax – PHP 770.59 – is this the travel tax? Security Surcharge – PHP 288.97 and i want to ask also , since im OFW am i exempted with this taxes (terminal and travel tax going to HK for holiday?)

February 1, 2017 at 9:52 pm

I’ll breakdown the list so it’s easier to go through them.

PH Passenger Service Charge – PHP 491.07 – is this the terminal fee?

This I believe is the PH airport terminal fee. There should be another item called the “PH PSC Value Added Tax: 58.93,” which usually amounts to P58.93. So, the total is the P550 terminal fee.

This terminal fee should be refundable for OFWs with OEC.

Air Passenger Departure Tax – PHP 770.59 – is this the travel tax?

This is a HK$120 fee charged in Hong Kong, not in the Philippines.

Hi i am traveling to singapore next week. First time ko.. Magkanu babayaran kong travel tax, and do i need to pay terminal fees?. Mejo nervous kc aq as a first timer eh,, sana matulungan m ko.. Saka do i need to fill up embarkation card and where to get it ba… Your reply is going to be a good help.,

February 23, 2017 at 5:27 pm

P1,620 po yung travel tax per person for economy class tickets. Sa airport po yan binabayaran. Kung galing ka Manila Airport, hindi na kelangan mag bayad ng terminal fee sa airport kase nabayaran na po yan sa ticket.

Yung embarkation card before arriving in Singapore, usually dini-distribute po yan during the flight. Sakali wala sa flight mo, naka lagay lang yan sa immigration checkpoint sa Singapore.

Safe trip Lovelie!

You don’t need to pay the terminal fee when you arrive in the Philippines. If you’re flying out of Davao, you need to pay the terminal fee at the airport. If you’re flying from Manila, no need to pay. The fee is already included in the ticket price. See the list of terminal fee prices above.

There seems to be a bit of a confusion (mix up) here … Under “Airport terminal fee” you wrote: “You do not have to pay the terminal fee if you are on a flight from Manila, Caticlan (Boracay), or a domestic flight from Cebu.” and again under “Popular Philippine Airports” you wrote: Cebu-Mactan (CEB) Domestic – Included in flight ticket. International – P750. But … under “Mactan–Cebu International Airport (CEB)” you wrote: “The Cebu Airport passenger terminal fee is P750 per person for domestic flights. If you are on an international flight, you do not have to pay the terminal fee since it should already be paid for / included in the plane ticket price, at the time of booking.” This is the total opposite of the first two. So which is correct? Also if you go international but is required to change plane, like Cebu to Manila, then Manila to Bangkok, do you have to first pay Domestic then International terminal fees or do you pay the International terminal fee twice? Once in Cebu (750) and again (as included in ticket) in Manila?

May 14, 2017 at 5:17 pm

The first one is correct. Thanks for pointing out the error Luigi.

Just did a mock online booking for a Cebu-Manila-Bangkok flight, only the P750 PH international terminal fee shows up on the receipt. So, you might have to pay the terminal fee (for international flights) ONLY ONCE & it’s already included in the total price, upon purchase. This assumes that the whole journey is on a single plane ticket, and not two separate tickets.

If you booked a Cebu – Manila flight ticket, and another Manila – Bangkok flight ticket … You might have to pay the domestic terminal fee in Cebu, and international terminal fee in Manila. Both should already be included in the total price, upon purchase. So, you don’t need to pay at the airport. If both flights are on the same airline, on the same day, best to ask the airport/airline staff if you can get a refund for your Cebu-Manila terminal fee… If they are on different airlines & on different dates, you will need to pay both.

You only pay the international terminal fee once.

Many thanks if someone can answer our queries.

September 22, 2017 at 9:00 am

The “travel tax” commonly mentioned on this page is the Philippine Travel Tax . It mostly applies to Philippine citizens traveling abroad and foreigners on long-term PH visa.

If you are visiting the PH for a short time, you shouldn’t need to worry about it. It is paid at the airport not when you book your flight online anyways.

Those fees you mentioned are probably mandatory airport/gov’t fees. So yes, you may need to pay all of them.

Hi Trisha, all airports around the world charge terminal fees and taxes, you just don’t notice it because it’s already included in the airfare. As for the travel tax for international Pinoy travelers, PH Gov’t should really make an exception for ASEAN flights, which will encourage more intra-regional tourism activities/spending.

You can check the link to TIEZA’s website that I provided on the article. Here the link in case you missed it: http://tieza.gov.ph/travel-tax/

Details are posted there on exemptions. Here is what i found:

—– Who may be exempted from paying the Travel Tax? The following Filipino citizens are exempted from the payment of travel tax pursuant to Sec. 2 of PD 1183, as amended:

Overseas Filipino workers Filipino permanent residents abroad whose stay in the Philippines is less than one year Infants (2 years and below) —–

November 9, 2019 at 7:21 pm

All airports charge a terminal fee. Most airports in the world charge way more than any airport in the Philippines. They just include the terminal fee in your ticket price so you don’t see it. In any case, for international flights from Mactan Cebu, purchased since 1st September this year, they have the terminal fee included in the ticket price now.

What is travel tax philippines.

travel tax philippines to korea

The Philippine travel tax is a levy imposed on individuals departing from Philippine airports for international destinations. This tax is collected to generate revenue for the country’s tourism infrastructure and related projects.

The requirement to pay travel tax is applicable to:

1. Filipino citizens. 2. Taxable foreign passport holders. 3. Non-immigrant foreign passport holders who have resided in the Philippines for over a year.

How Much is the Philippine Travel Tax?

The amount of travel tax in the Philippines varies depending on the passenger’s class of travel and destination. As of the latest information available, the rates are as follows:

  • First class passengers: PHP 2,700
  • Economy class passengers: PHP 1,620

If you are qualified, you may apply for Reduced Travel Tax (RTT), which is a tax reduction program designed to lower the cost of travel for eligible individuals. There are two types of RTT, namely standard and privileged.

Standard Reduced Travel Tax

As per the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zon Authority (TIEZA) , the following individuals may apply for standard reduced travel tax.

  • Minors (from 2 years and one (1) day to 12th birthday on date of travel)
  • Accredited Filipino journalist whose travel is in pursuit of journalistic assignment
  • Those authorized by the President of the Republic of the Philippines for reasons of national interest

The standard reduced travel tax for first-class passengers is PHP 1,350, and for economy passengers, it is PHP 810 .

Privileged Reduced Travel Tax

The privileged reduced travel tax is exclusively available to dependents of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), namely:

  • Legitimate spouse of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW)
  • Unmarried children of an OFW, whether legitimate or illegitimate, who are below 21 years of age
  • Children of OFWs with disabilities even above 21 years of age.

The privileged reduced travel tax for first-class and economy-class passengers is PHP 400 and PHP 300 , respectively.

How to Avail of the Reduced Philippine Travel Tax

To help you get started applying for RTT, here’s a general step-by-step guide.

Step 1: Understand the criteria for eligibility for RTT and determine whether you pass for the standard or privileged reduced travel tax.

Step 2: Gather all necessary supporting documents to prove your eligibility. Depending on your eligibility, the requirements can vary. Check the complete details here – Reduced Travel Tax | Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (tieza.gov.ph)

Step 3: If you have not yet purchased your airline ticket or made any travel arrangements, you can apply for the RTT in advance online as long as you have all the requirements already. Do note that filing for RTT online is limited to those who have not yet purchased their airline ticket and have not yet paid the full travel tax rate. Online RTT applications submitted after 5 P.M. or on weekends are processed on the next working day.

If you have already purchased an airline ticket and prefer to pay your RTT at the airport, proceed to step 4.

Step 4: Arrive at the airport or designated government office where travel tax payments are processed. Look for the travel tax counter or designated personnel.

Step 5: Present your supporting documents to the personnel at the travel tax counter. This will verify your eligibility for the reduced travel tax rate.

Step 6: Pay the reduced travel tax amount applicable to your category. The personnel will inform you of the exact amount to be paid based on your eligibility.

In case you have paid for the full travel tax amount despite being eligible for RTT, TIEZA advises you to apply for a refund of the excess travel tax paid ON-SITE at any TIEZA Travel Tax Office or airport counter.

Step 7: Once the reduced travel tax is paid, you will receive a receipt or clearance indicating that the tax has been settled. Keep this document safe, as you may need it during your travel.

Step 8: With the reduced travel tax paid and clearance obtained, proceed with your travel plans as usual.

What is the Philippine Travel Tax?

In-person payment.

You might believe that all you need to visit the Philippines is an airplane ticket and maybe a Visa but think again.

Some countries require you to pay travel tax (also called a departure tax) when you leave from their airports and the Philippines is one of them.

But what exactly is a Philippine travel tax and how much does it cost?

Also, do you really have to pay or it?

Read through this simple guide to Philippine travel tax to enjoy a hassle-free, smooth-sailing vacation in the Philippines!

Philippine travel tax is a fee you might need to pay when you leave the country by plane.  This tax is only paid when you depart from the Philippines no matter which country you are headed or going back to. Philippine travel tax does not apply to arriving passengers.

You also need to pay an airport terminal fee on top of the travel tax.

Philippine Passenger Service Charge is an additional airport terminal tax fee for passengers leaving from any of the airports in the country.

But don’t be easily discouraged because chances are, you probably don’t need to dish out money for these additional taxes.

Why Do You Need To Pay Philippine Travel Tax + Terminal Fee?

The main reason why you’re paying the terminal fee when you depart from the Philippines is maintenance.

Since you used the airport and its amenities during your stay, no matter how short it is, someone needs to maintain it and pay for it.

The travel tax has something to do with boosting Philippine tourism. The money earned from Philippine travel tax is divided by the government into portions:

  • 50% goes to Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA). This agency makes sure that your tourist destinations are worth the travel.
  • 40% goes to tourism-related educational programs and courses through the Commission on Higher Education. This is to guarantee that there are highly-skilled and trained Filipinos to assist and guide you. Filipinos are known for being hospitable and they will sure to treat you right!
  • 10% goes to the National Commission for Culture and Arts.

For a detailed breakdown of Philippine travel taxes and where it goes, you can read it on  Section 73 of the Republic Act No. 9593 .

How much is the Philippine travel tax + terminal fee?

Here’s the thing,

you DON’T NEED TO PAY THE PHILIPPINE TRAVEL TAX if you’re a foreign tourist as long as your visit is less than a year .

But you do have to pay the terminal fee which costs around 600 to 1, 135 Philippine peso per person (roughly 11 to 23 US dollars) for international flights.

Although, you might want to check on your ticket because the terminal fee is sometimes included in the flight ticket price upon booking unless you’re departing from Clark and Puerto Princesa airports in the Philippines.

But in case you plan to stay in the Philippines for more than a year or you’re a taxable foreign passport holder, the cost of Philippine travel tax depends on your ticket. Travel tax rates are listed below:

  • For economy / business class: PHP 1,620 or about USD 31.88
  • For first-class: PHP 2,700 or about USD 53.14

If you do have to pay for taxes, you can apply to be exempted from it only if you fall under these categories:

Filipino citizens who are permanent residents abroad

  • Overseas Filipino workers
  • Foreign diplomats
  • US military personnel

For a full and detailed list of individuals who are exempted from paying the travel tax, go to the  website of the Philippine Consulate General  of your country.

Where Do I Pay My Philippine Travel Tax + Terminal Fee?

Before you pay the taxes, it is important that you check your airline ticket if travel tax and terminal fee are already included in the price.

If not, there are several ways that you can pay your Philippine travel tax.

Online payments

You can pay your travel tax online in advance before your departure date in the Philippines in different ways.

It’s highly recommended that you do this so you will not spend hours lining up at the airport.

First is through your airlines. Selected airlines offer the option of paying Philippine travel tax online on their websites. Here are some of them:

  • Philippine Airlines
  • Cebu Pacific
  • Cathay Pacific

If your airline doesn’t offer these services, your second choice is going to the website of Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority or TIEZA.

Here is the step-by-step process of using their Online Travel Tax Payment System (OTTPS):

  • Create an account on the TIEZA website by providing basic details.
  • Validate your account through their confirmation email.
  • Complete the required details like passport number, address, and contact number.
  • On the TIEZA homepage, go to the “Travel Tax” tab.
  • Provide ticket or confirmation number
  • Choose your payment method which can be through credit/debit card or over-the-counter.

Take note that there is an additional convenience fee charged for 1-2 USD depending on your bank. Also, don’t forget to check your email and print 2 copies of your receipt.

These will be submitted at the check-in counter on the day of your flight.

If you still want to do it the old-school way but still want to skip the line at the airport, you can pay your travel tax in advance in several malls in the Philippines. Here are some of the mall counters around Metro Manila where you can pay your travel tax.

  • SM Mall of Asia Travel Tax Service Counter (Pasay City)
  • SM City Manila Travel Tax Service Counter (Manila City)
  • SM City North EDSA Travel Tax Service Counter (Quezon City)
  • Robinsons Galleria Travel Tax Service Counter (Mandaluyong City)

Your last choice would be lining up at the airport to pay your travel tax.

The good thing is, it’s relatively easy. You just have to show your ticket and your passport. Don’t worry as all airports in the Philippines have tax service counters usually located in the departure areas.

Remember your mandatory terminal fee? If the terminal tax is not yet included in your ticket, you can pay it on the airport’s tax service counters.

I want a refund on my travel tax, what do I do?

Maybe your flight got canceled or you suddenly have a change of heart, you can ask for a refund for your Philippine travel tax if you paid it in advance as long as you are under one of these conditions:

  • Your ticket is unused.
  • You accidentally paid travel tax twice.
  • You are exempted from paying the tax, but you already paid.
  • You downgraded from first-class to economy class.
  • You were removed or offloaded from your flight.
  • Your flight was canceled.

Luckily, refunding is an easy process as long as you have your supporting documents.

You can claim your tax refund within two years from your date of payment online or in-person.

It’s either through the  TIEZA  website, your airline, or selected travel tax centers in the Philippines.

Here are the steps for online tax refund:

  • Go to Travel Tax Refund under the TIEZA website.
  • Fill up their TIEZA Refund application form.
  • Present passport and documents to the Travel Tax officer.
  • Get a check of the refund.

The documents that you need to present depends on your case, but the main requirements are your passport and your airline ticket with travel tax payment or official receipt if paid at TIEZA.

You may check the complete list of requirements at TIEZA’s website.

And you’re all set! Now you know your travel tax basics, make sure to keep them in mind when you plan your trip.

A handy tip is to pay them in advance so you can throw that worry out of your way.

Lastly, go get your passport and ticket because no taxes should hold you back from visiting the Philippines!
