  2. 1,640 pesos multiply by the number of people going out of the country every hour equals worst airport in Asia. HANGTARAY NI BS AQUINO! Gandang legacy sir!

    7. Matagal na matagal na yang travel tax na yaN bakit ngayon ka lang nag rereklamo? Eh di ba nasa news na nga na pinag aaralan ng alisin? Or baka ngayon ka lang nagbiyahr so i will give you the benefit of the doubt.

      Delete
    8. Hindi pa presidente si PNoy may ravel tax na. Lahat na lang isisi kay Pnoy. Obvious ka naman masyado.

  5. they really need to get rid of this. Antaas! I am under my Father's visa sa UAE pero more than 2K ang binabayaran ko kahit technically di ako classified as OFW. Tapos makikita mo ang lame lang ng airport facilities at services!

    1. Confusing ang comment mo ate. OFW doesn't pay Travel Tax which is Php1,620. Pinoys who are going overseas for tourism are required to pay the travel tax. If you are Filipino citizen who is a permanent resident of another country, you will pay a lot less, like Php200 for "Processing Fee"

      Delete
    2. 3:53 we still pay... yung under father's or husband's sponsorship. My dad pays for his POEA thing but not me. It's crazy to think theyre asking for this sa mga mag tatravel lang or anak na lumalabas ng bansa na hindi naman mag wowork overseas at ang taas talaga!

      Delete
  6. i disagree. i think the reason for taxing is that this is your contirbution to our country while you are contributing to other country's economy while traveling outside the philippines. tama lang din yan to promote local tourism rather than going outside our country. of course exceptions for ofw's. i thank you!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. So hindi enough ung income tax and yung goods na binibili sa Pinas as contribution kaya ibburden mo mga travelers? At bakit nga ba 1700?

      Delete
    2. You already paid your taxes upon purchasing your tickets, why would you have to pay for another tax upon leaving the country?

      Delete
    3. 12:28 Traveling outside the country doesnt mean you have lots of cash to burn. Revenue raising lang talaga yan at as usual tayo na naman ang nbburden jan. They need to justify that amount though kung yan ang rason nila.

      Delete
    4. wait lang. me tax din pag nagtravel ka sa local airports. how is it promoting local tourism?

      Delete
    5. Anon 12:56PM, I don't think that there's traval tax for domestic flights, baka terminal fee ang sinasabi mo

      Delete
    6. Honestly, I don't mind paying that amount if first or world class sana mga airports natin. Pero pangit services and walang improvement. Dami pang issues. For what is offered, it's just too steep!

      Delete
  7. Pero bakit yung ibang nagtatravel like me 200pesos lang ang bayad?

    1. Baka naman terminal fee yun? Travel tax yang sinasabi ni pareng Cesar!

    2. If I remember it right, 200 pesos is for travel within the country lang. Domestic lang po.

      Delete
    3. Terminal fee yan day! Basahin kasi ang resibo/ticket/stub bago rumampa sa airport

      Delete
    4. Domestic flights po yung Php200. International flights po 1k plus talaga.

    5. Baka sa bus ka lang sumasakay?

    6. travel saan po? kasi kung local lang i think mababa lang ang travel tax

    7. baka domestic yan teh

    12. P200 lang pag local travel

    13. Ako din baks P200, pag aalis ka as resident ng ibang bansa. Pero kung aalis ka as tourist buo bayad.

  8. Eto din talaga kinaiinis ko pag mgtravel ako abroad. The travel tax is too much!

  9. Travel tax or airport tax also implemented in other countries but it's included in the cost of the tickets. Dito lang sa Phils where you pay upon leaving, very manual, and prone to theft or corruption. Dapat seamless and documented lahat para accounted for lahat.

  22. I have no problem with taxes as long as it's spent on the facilities and services for a pleasant airport experience. But sadly the lion share will most likely go to avid supporters of the government through their pony appointed position hahhaha. So authentically third world .

  23. im US citizen now, visited the philippines a month ago, I thought theres tax to pay or terminal fee, I went to the line and tried to pay when they asked my passport I handed my US passport after that they said I dont have to pay. Im confused, all people paying or not? One more thing theres a little booth outside the naia asking for 150 just to give you a cart and help you push it inside the airport take note they will tell you have to pay so I did because hes been so pushy about it. Then after we reached the line for checking in he is asking for tip and so pushy about it as well thats when i said NO but didnt want to leave so ignored him until he left. Those type of people need to be fired in the airport so shameless.

    1. If you're a foreigner and/or already a balikbayan and staying in a foreign country for more than 5 years, you are exempted in paying travel tax.

    2. ay true. kahit isang luggage lang dala mo gusto nila icart mo pa. hahaha

    3. Travel tax is only for Filipino citizens. Terminal fee is included in your ticket price. There are carts inside NAIA so why would you get one outside? I'm a U.S. citizen too.

  24. I asked one clerk collecting travel tax, at she confirmed na hindi sa airport napupunta yung amount. According to her sa gobyerno raw. I think yung terminal fee ang napupunta sa airport. Back to travel tax as per Kim Henares on one of her interviews. Yung mga middle class yung excess na pera nila sa abroad lang ginagastos kaya may travel tax. Something like this yung punto nyang p si Kim Shrek Henares. Wala syang pakialam kung saan gustong gastusin ng mga tao ang pinaghirapan nila. Dahil bago pa nila makuha ang kinita nila, nabawasan na ito ng tax. Kaya isa pa - P talaga si Kim Shrek Henares.

    1. Kaya nga TAX eh. Ang government lang naman ang may right to impose taxes. All collections are deposited to the Treasury for government expeditures.

      Delete
    2. Kaya nga, anong klaseng rason yan. So what if we choose to spend our money abroad? At pano kung gumastos ako, say, here in Australia where you can reimburse tax for goods that were bought here? Or diba may mga states sa US na tax-free ang mga gamit and food I think? Baka mas malaki pa yung travel tax na binayaran ko jan sa Pinas (despite physically not being there) kesa sa total tax na nagastos ka sa bansang ppntahan ko.

      Delete
    3. Ewan ko ba kung bakit mga regular, law-abiding citizens ang binburden nila sa extra revenue-raising nila. I live outside the Phils, and here, other sources of revenue are penalties and fines from speeding tickets, illegal parking, infringements, offences etc. Parang wala man lang incentive ang government for good, law-abiding citizens e kase kahit sila e knkawawa with questionable and exorbitant fees!!

      Delete
  25. I have nothing against paying travel tax. What's annoying is yung nkpila kn sa airport counter ng npktagal then papabalikin ka to pay travel tax. One of the reasons why I became a U.S. citizen. Mura Lang nmn $5 kaso hassle masyado dapat my advisory yan na if you're still a Filipino citizen you have to pay travel tax before checking in. Noon ko Lang nalaman yan.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Para hindi ka na bumalik, pwede ka na magbayad ng travel tax bago ka magcheck in. Kung tourist ka lang, automatic ka na magbayad ng travel tax. Yung last na alis ko, first time ko sinubukan magbayad muna ng travel tax, ayun, less than an hour tapos na ko magcheck in, maaga rin kasi ako dumating kaya konti pa lang pila sa check in.

    2. oops sorry, hindi ko nabasa about sa sinabi mo advisory. Toinks. Sorry! :)

  26. Nakakadagdag hassle pa to sa mga tao sa airport, bakit di na lang idagdag sa plane ticket then iremit ng mga airlines para mas convenient sa mga pasahero? Sa totoo lang ang dami ko na napuntahang bansa Pilipinas lang yata may ganito.

  28. Green card holder ako, i went home last Nov. nung pabalik na ko last Dec, i had enough pesos para pambayad sa travel and terminal taxes, pero ang pinabayaran lang sa kin yung more than 200 pesos ($5) . So siguro sa mga tourists and ofw lang nagaapply yung travel tax? Dapat alisin na nga yan kc kawawa naman mga ofw,sila ang malaki ang contribution sa economy ng Pinas.

  36. Kami ng asawa ko green card holders, nagbayad kami ng tig 200 pesos. Yung anak ko na US citizen walang binayaran. Kasi may taxes na yung binayaran naming ticket na binili online. Ganun din yung sa mother-in-law ko na bumili ng ticket sa agency sa pilipinas, kasama na sa ticket nya. Ang nakakainis talaga ay terminal fee na 750.

  37. OEC-isa pang wlang kwentanng binabayaran ng mga ofw na dapat ding tanggalin na. Tinanong ko ibang lahi dto sa uae, wla dw silang ganung hinabayaran sa country nila. Only in the Philippines bwahaha
