Olongapo/Subic Information


Currently, purchases can be made at the stores on the SBFZ with no ration card and no limit.

On arrival in the country, returning adult Philippine citizens (called Balikbayan) absent for at least one year are authorized to purchase $2,000 of duty free goods within 48 hours of arrival. All other adults, including tourists, are allowed $1,000/adult within 48 hours of arrival in the country, no matter how frequent. Since passports do not indicate time of arrival, you have two full days to shop if you say that you arrived at 2200.
