    To start paying, you will need to create an account. Go to https://traveltax.tieza.gov.ph and input the basic details. Once finished, you should receive a confirmation email so you could verify your application. Complete your account application and input the required details such as contact number, address, and passport scan. Once done, you can proceed to pay for travel tax by providing the correct ticket or confirmation number. Afterward, you can choose a payment method.

    OTTPS is currently payable through Visa credit and debit cards; Over The Counter (OTC non-bank) channel partners such as San Mig Food Avenue, Petron Corporation, Total Philippines Corporation, H Lhuillier Pawnshop, Tambunting Pawnshop Inc., Shopwise and Wellcome supermarkets, and Touchpay Kiosks among others. Other credit cards and payment channels will be added soon according to TIEZA.

    Card payments will receive an acknowledgment receipt through the mail. OTC payments will receive a reference code used to pay at any of the channel partners or via Touchpay kiosks. After payment, you should receive the acknowledgment receipt. Print two copies and submit both at the airport check-in counter on the date of your flight. There is no need to go through the travel tax counter!

    “We want to have a hassle-free payment scheme. One that will allow passengers the option to pay their travel taxes online instead of lining up at the airports and travel tax centers. This is in line with the directive of the President to reduce the queues in government centers,” said TIEZA Chief Operating Officer Pocholo Paragas during the launch.

    I tried last June and was able to pay successfully. I believe they only accepted Visa as of that time and I used my Metrobank Visa Classic card to pay for me and my sisters travel tax.

    Has someone tried this online payment system so far? Have you succeeded? Been trying to pay my and my children’s travel tax online for three days already, but I keep on having failed transaction. Im starting to wonder if this thing is really working. I want to settle my travel tax for a hassle-free trip, yet it turns out this online thingy is the one that is stressing me the most. 🙁
