Beginning with the 1999 report, travel receipts include the expenditure of non-resident overseas Filipinos (OF) in the Philippines during home visits. Travel debits cover expenditures of resident OFs in the host countries in which they are deployed. Information on residents’ credit card expenditures abroad are obtained via reports of the Credit Card Association of the Philippines.
