My question is if I would need a permit to transport an airsoft gun into the Philippines? Would I need to declare it.

I am not selling them or anything. I would be just keeping them for myself. Most of the laws I have read involve dealing or selling.

Assuming you are not a citizen of PH, and you are genuine tourist, you cannot bring an air soft gun into the Philippines.

According to the "Airsoft legal issues" Wikipedia entry on the subject:

"In the Philippines, you need to get a PTT (Permit To Transport) license and license the replica as a firearm with the government. It is also required thet the individual is joining a bonifide airsoft club and must be 18 years of age or older. You also need a license to manufacture/sale a airsoft replica. It is also mandated to have a Permit To Carry outside of residency license. Failure to comply with the rule is punishable by correctional imprisonment and a fine of Ten thousand Pesos (₱10,000).[45]"

Without the proper permitting and licensing, I would dare to say, you will not be able to legally import an airsoft gun into PH as a tourist.
