Overseas Filipino Workers are required to get Overseas Employment Certificate to be exempted from the terminal fee of Php 550. However, some airline companies already include this terminal fee in their ticket prices. Most OFW’s are not aware of this so they don’t get their refund from the airline companies.
On March 15, 2017, The Manila International Airport Authority and 40 airline companies operating in NAIA signed a memorandum that they will waive the terminal fee in their ticket prices.
It started April 30, 2017 for face-to-face ticket purchase and by the end of July 2017, for online ticket purchases.
