Hi guys,

I was browsing MNL's website and found the information to be lacking and confusing regarding the departure tax and connecting flights.

It states:

"Under Presidential Decree (PD) No. 1183, as amended by PD 1205, Batas Pambansa (BP) 38 and Executive Order (EO) 283, Filipinos and other nationals travelling to other countries are required to pay travel tax before departure from the Philippines.

Who must pay travel tax

Filipino nationals
Permanent resident aliens
Non-resident aliens who stayed in the Philippines for more than one (1) year.

Who are exempted

Filipino overseas contract workers
Filipino permanent residents abroad whose stay in the Philippines is less than one year
Infants (2 years old and below)
Foreign diplomatic representatives
Employees of the UN and its agencies
US military personnel
International carrier crew
Philippine foreign service personnel assigned abroad and their dependents
Philippine Government employees on official travel (excluding Government-owned and controlled corporations)
Grantees of foreign Government funded trips
Students with approved scholarships by appropriate Government agency
Personnel of Philippine offices of multinational corporations not engaged in business in the Philippines and their dependents."

It says nothing about connecting pax.

Where have all the tri-jets gone...

Domestic to International? International to International? If Domestic to international then you will pay. I have never done Int-Int through MNL. Just Dom-Dom Int-Dom and Dom-Int.

Usually connecting pax are exempt from departure taxes, at least international-international, at least it used to be so in BKK (when they still had it) and in Indonesia. Not sure about MNL though

I'll be connecting from DPS to HKG.
But I found information on the IATA website.
I will be exempt as long as I stay airside.

Do you mean when BKK had a departure tax? They still do, but now it's included in the ticket.

Hmmm, I'll need to check on the in-transit situation though. I leave for CGK in about 12 hours and will transit through BKK.
