Philippines Origination

All airlines are prohibited from accepting tickets issued outside the Philippines for travel originating in the Philippines. PTAs and E-tickets are excluded from this ruling and will be accepted. Travel is considered originating in the Philippines when:

  • passenger is a resident of the Philippines.
  • passenger is subject to the Philippine travel tax.
  • the first leg of the trip begins in the Philippines as verified by the absence of corresponding immigration entry on the passport subsequent to the date of the issuance of the airline ticket abroad.

If the passengers are considered originating in the Philippines -as outlined above- and their ticket was issued outside the Philippines - they must purchase a new ticket in the Philippines at fares in effect on the date the new ticket is issued.
