No need to print plane tickets: DOJ says e-tickets will do
MANILA, Philippines - There's no need to print your plane tickets anymore. Passengers at all international ports of entry and exit in the country may present their electronic tickets using their smartphones and tablets.
In a statement, Justice Secretary Leila De Lima said that the advisory from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and its attached agency, the Bureau of Immigration (BI), is effective immediately.
"This is another step to improve access to basic government services. We shall continue to work with all stakeholders to inject common sense and process logic into our systems," De Lima said.
The new policy is by virtue of Operations Order No. SBM-2013-003, entitled "Removing the Requirement of Presentation of the Printed Hard Copy of Return and/or Onward Passage Ticket," dated August 12.
