Terminal Fee Refund Counters for OFWs

The Consulate General of the Philippines just posted Advisory regarding the implementation of the International Passengers Service Charge (Terminal Fee) which took effect last February 1, 2015.

This means that terminal fee of Php550 is now integrated in purchasing airline ticket.The reason for this is to ease the traffic inside the airports caused by the long queue of passengers paying terminal fees.

For us Pinoy OFWs, we all know we are exempted in paying terminal fees if we have this OEC certificate issued by consulate. But now, we are forced to pay it if we purchase airline ticket outside the Philippines or thru online booking then ask for refund with some sort of conditions. Please see the infographic advisory below for details on how you can get your refund.
