DOJ: E-Tickets will now suffice

DOJ: E-Tickets will now suffice

Well, it’s about time. Effective immediately, the Bureau of Immigration and Deportation will no longer require passengers to present printed copies of their plane tickets as mandated by the Department of Justice (DOJ).



This is in line with the recent order (Operations Order No. 2013-003) from DOJ entitled Removing the Requirement of Presentation of the Printed Hard Copy of Return and/or Onward Passage Ticket which allows air passengers to use E-Tickets displayed on a mobile device such as smartphones and/or tablets in lieu of hard copies of the ticket.

The new ruling applies for all international airports around the country including the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
