Manila Airport Customs

by jeffdb

I will be visiting for 2 weeks. I plan to bring a carry on bag with a few personal things and an newer lap top. In my checked bag I plan to bring a cheap cell phone (no sim card), a cheap netbook bought it used on ebay 2 yrs ago $<200), and 4-5 bottles of perfume, all less than 3 oz in size, different brands, clothes, personal toiletries, a fist full of hershey bars. My concern is mailnly being hassled about the extra net book and the perfume. Will I need to declare these? Should i be concerned? Thanks!

PS I have never been to manila, so I'm unfamiliar with what to expect.

I don't know where you are boarding the plane but 4-5 bottles of perfume plus personal toiletries including shampoo, cleanser, moisturiser etc. may exceed the liquids allowance for carry-on baggage (hand luggage, cabin baggage) which would be checked at your departure airport.
Otherwise, Philippines customs allowance doesn't specifically refer to perfume which implies that it is covered by "personal goods" : that means they MAY consider whether the perfume bottles you have are intended for personal use (unwrapped and half-used) or not. But to be absolutely certain, you would have to check with the customs or economic attaché at your local Philippines embassy.

Link to information on customs allowance: http://www.iatatravelcentre.com/PH-Philippines-customs-currency-airport-tax-regulations-details.htm; take whatever proof you have of the value of the netbooks (invoice for second-hand purchase..), to prevent them being charged as new items.

The Philippines requires visitors to fill out an old-fashioned customs declaration, in which there is a yes/no question about electronic equipment you are bringing with you. In 6 visits in the past two years, I have always checked the 'yes' box. You hand this important document to a bored-looking customs officer as you leave the luggage pick-up area. Once one of these guys woke up enough to ask me what I had, and I told him: 2 laptops, three cameras, two cellphones... rather like your list, in fact. He shrugged and let me through.

Keep a pen handy on the plane for this and the other futile bits of paper no one will ever look but are required by Filipino law.

On the basis of my experience, the likelihood of your being hassled at customs is slight, particularly if you look like a tourist.

Enjoy Manila! I always have a blast there.

i think too much perfume is allowed as long as you put it in your check in luggage ...to carry it all..too much for personal use.

goodluck !!!

have a nice trip here in manila :-)

I dont see any problem with the customs based on the items you have disclosed. I have been through Phil customs tens of times and have never encountered any problem... the process is like breeze; just complete the declaration form and hand over to customs officials before airport exit.

No need to declare anything if these things are for your personal use and is part of your work. You are not bringing boxes of perfume or electronic gadgets. IF asked, tell the customs officer that these are for personal use. You have a sweet tooth and you like candies. You have a problem with body odor so you have bottles of perfume. Just don't talk too much. Keep your answers simple and short and you would be fine. ;)

Travel Tips for Manila

In and around Manila

by cmarsek

I'll second Intramuros and from there you can walk to the nearby Rizal Park (I think that's the name).

Also, you should take a tour (by boat) to Corrigidor Island, which was a location of fighting during WWII.

If it is raining, you could visit the large mall there (I think it's called the Mall of Asia).

You can also take a day trip by car to Tagaytay, and see the volcano's there. It's possible (and I recommend) arranging a boat to the island volcano and then bargaining with the villagers to take you to the crater on horseback.

Global Roaming Privileges at Smart Communications

by machomikemd

Global roaming rates are very expensive and since GSM (global system for Mobile Communications) phones are more popular than CDMA (Code Divisivion Multiple Acess), there are more countries with roaming areas for GSM and the latest hybrid of 3G (WCDMA-Wireless Code Division Multiple Access) here in Asia. 3G is also catching up in North America.

It is better to buy a pre-paid SIM card here (note: only GSM and hybrid 3g/GSM phones need SIM but pure 3G and CDMA Phones does not!) which is only 50 pesos and load with pre-paid credits than use your CDMA phone here since you need a dual phone (means it has GSM and 3G Capabilities for your roaming here) and besides, the philippines has the chepeast SMS rates for local use at just 1 peso per sms sent (it costs 40 cents in the states or 18 pesos sms text!) so you can just use your sms rather than relying on calls (calls cost about 7.50 pesos a minute on a pre-paid card) and save a lot than roaming (a roaming call here costs 80 pesos a minute and a international text costs 25 pesos).

You can buy SIM cards and Pre-paid Loads Everywhere! (malls, stores, supermarkets)

Portrayed in this album are 210 assorted photographs classified as follows: Aerial Photographs, Baguio Public Market, The Drive Up Kennon Road, Faces in The Crowd, and Glimpse of Baguio (Circa 2000). Also portrayed in this album are photographs and newspaper articles of the big and destructive earthquake of 1990 which brought death and destruction to the city. 'Glimpse of Baguio' shows how the city has been reconstructed and brought back to life by its residents who never gave up hope on their city. The cover photo of the album shows a representative group of the local Igorot community in Honolulu, Hawaii

Carabao Mango! World's Sweetest!

by machomikemd

The Philippine Carabao Mango is the world's sweetest and juiciest mango as certified by the guiness book of world records in 1995, specifically in the Zambales province. The meat is not fibrous or pulpy unlike the Tommy Atkins of florida or the the Ataulfo Mango of Mexico (which was cross bred from carabao mangoes coming from the philippines during the Manila-Acapulco Galleon Trade in the 18th century) of the Alphonso Mango of India.
