Do I need to pay anything?

No, eTravel is free to use. You will not be asked to pay anything to fill out the form.

I can't find my flight on the eTravel website. What should I do?

If you are on a connecting flight, please use the flight number of your flight to or from the Philippines.

If you are on a codeshare flight, please use the flight number of the airline operating the flight. Some flights have multiple flight numbers, so make sure to use the correct one.

If your entire journey is a domestic flight, you don't need to fill out eTravel.

If you still can't find your flight number, please tick the "Special Flight" option.

Do I need to present my QR code to the immigration officer?

No, you do not need to present your QR code to the immigration officer. Your eTravel record is already linked to your passport details. The immigration officer can already see your eTravel record when they scan your passport.
