MANILA, Philippines — The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Tuesday issued a warning  against scammers who offer to document processing for the eTravel electronic travel declaration system.

According to the BI, the eTravel registration is free of charge at the official website.


“The eTravel registration process is absolutely free of charge.  We, therefore, advise the traveling public to register only in the government’s official website at,” BI Commissioner Norman Tansingco said.


The bureau issued the warning after receiving reports that some individuals charge travelers fees in exchange for processing their eTravel registration.

The fees range from P3,000 to P5,000, the BI said.

However, when they arrive at the airport, the victims would come to realize that they have been scammed.

“It is only when they encounter our officers at the airport that these passengers would realize they have been duped by these fraudsters and scammers in the internet,” Tansingco added.
