hi,..I am very confused when I've got a call from my 18 and 16 daughters from NAIA airport this morning.They paid 4,000+Php that supposed to be was 750.00 +750.00=1,500php for their two.I just been in Philippines last year and the departure tax was only 750.00.we are permanent residence in Australia but our passport remains Philippines.

Hope I can have some explanations for these?

This is the Filipino travel tax, payable by Filipino passport holders.

Here is a partial explanation with a link to more information:

how long where they in country? Its P550, we all pay to exit now and P200 processing fee if residence is outside of Philippines. No travel tax unless you have been in country for a year I believe. I suspect your girls did not know what to say or how to explain things. Just write if off to experience.

do you have a Filipino passport and were you in the country for 6 months. No travel tax.
