"All Philippine passports are now integrated with chips that contain the data of the holder. These new passports are called ePassports. The ePassport is a global standard in travel documents, and as a member of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Philippines is required to adhere to their standards.



The chip embedded in the ePassport contains data essential in verifying the identity of the passport holder. It contains data on the personal information found on the data page of the passport, the biometrics of the passport holder, the unique chip identification number and a digital signature to verify the authenticity of the data stored on the chip. This technology allows the information stored in an ePassport to be read by special chip readers at a close distance, such as the scanners used in immigration counters."

JANUARY 2016: SAR87 FOR ONE WAY AIRPORT TERMINAL FEE IN SAUDI ARABIA




Inbound and outbound international passengers would have to pay an SR87 fee for using airport facilities starting Jan. 1, 2016, ArabNews reported. The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) has announced that the fees would be recovered from airlines. The airlines, presumably will add up this cost to passenger’s airline tickets.
 
Originally, KSA airports are collecting SR50 for terminal fee upon purchase of tickets.

Right now, for each ticket purchased, airline company will collect additional  SR87 for terminal fee, or SR174 for round trip ticket (arrival and departure in the Kingdom).
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Civil Aviation (Gaca) announced that they will begin to privatize the operations of its airports in the first quarter of 2016, starting with Riyadh’s King Khaled International airport (KKIA). They are planning to privatize total of 27 airports in the Kingdom, in order to lessen the expenses and deficit due to lower oil revenues because of the low oil oil price.

Even Some Taxi's Going to the Airport Are Part of the Tanim-Bala?


The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) summoned the operator and the driver of the Virgil taxi with license plates UVK 190 that was allegedly involved in a laglag-bala case near the NAIA. LTFRB’s announcement was posted on the agency’s official Twitter account yesterday morning. LTFRB chairman Winston Ginez said that the board would issue a show cause order against the operator and driver of the taxi requiring them to appear at a hearing on Wednesday morning to give their side about the scam that has been circulating online.

Julius Niel Habana posted on Facebook some photos of the Vigil taxi on Oct. 30 warning OFWs who will be going abroad. Habana said that his seaman friend was on his way to the NAIA on Oct. 29 when he was almost victimized by the laglag-bala scam. He said his friend noticed that the taxi driver had placed something inside his bag. 
Habana said the seaman sent him a text message asking for his advise and he told his friend to go to his place first before going to the airport. He said when his friend arrived he took the bag from the taxi and they found a .38 caliber bullet inside. He said that because his friend was catching an international flight, they did not file a complaint against the taxi driver and the seaman took another taxi to the airport.
