The Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), in partnership with MyEG PHILIPPINES, INC. (MyEG PH), officially launches today the Online Travel Tax Services System (OTTSS), providing traveling citizens with more than 90,000 options to pay for their travel tax nationwide. 

This comes after TIEZA’s Chief Operating Officer, Mark Lapid signed the  Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with MyEG PH Chief Executive Officer, Ann  Margaret Saldaña last June 8, 2022, at the Midas Tent in Midas Hotel and Casino,  Pasay City.

With the OTTSS, TIEZA provides citizens a faster, more convenient, and hassle free way to pay their travel taxes online using different payment options from  MyEG’s partner E-Wallets such as GCash, Maya (formerly known as PayMaya),  

GrabPay, and ShopeePay; Online Bank Transfers from BDO, BPI, RCBC,  Unionbank, and Maybank; or thru their VISA, Mastercard, and JCB credit and  debit cards. Cash payment options are also still available thru any branch of 7- Eleven, Cebuana Lhuillier, Palawan Express, Bayad Center, SM Malls, Robinsons  Department Store, Tambunting Pawnshop, RD Pawnshop, USSC, Posible, DA5,  and many others. 

The process of paying the travel tax online is also quick and easy, with just  almost a minute to complete. Citizens just simply need to visit TIEZA’s website  at, click Travel Tax on the navigation menu, and choose  Pay Travel Tax Online. On the page, they just need to click the MYEG icon, fill-up  the form, select their preferred payment option, and pay.  

In addition to the OTTSS, citizens will also soon be able to pay for their travel tax via MyEG’s website at This saves the time that travelers  consume queuing in airports before boarding their flights. 

“We’ve seen a tremendous increase in inbound travel, which is a good sign for  the country’s tourism. Now that the Philippines and other countries have more  relaxed Covid-19 restrictions, we expect a spike in our number of outbound  travels, especially to countries such as South Korea, wherein Filipino tourists are 

allowed visa-free entries to Gangwon Province and the Seoul Metropolitan Area.  We hope the citizens will utilize the OTTSS, so we can somehow decongest the  terminals and lessen the transactions and counters that citizens need to deal with before boarding their flight,” says TIEZA’s Chief Operating Officer Mr. Mark  Lapid. 

“MYEG s mission has always been to work hand-in-hand with government  institutions, from automating their processes, platforms and systems up to activating our more than 90,000 payment channels nationwide. We are honored  to partner with TIEZA’s Online Travel Tax Services System in integrating and  activating our payment services, thus providing a more hassle-free and  convenient way for citizens to pay for their travel taxes online,” says MYEG PH’s  Chief Executive Officer Ms. Ann Margaret Saldaña. 

The Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), formerly the  Philippine Tourism Authority, is a Philippine agency under the Department of  Tourism responsible for implementing policies and programs of the department  on the development, promotion, and supervision of tourism projects in the  Philippines. 

TIEZA acts as the Department of Tourism’s implementing arm in providing  support infrastructures and facilitating investments in tourism enterprise zones  (TEZ) nationwide and relies in its 50% share from the gross collection of the travel  tax as its primary source of funding to carry out its mandate.
