How to request diversion on tower?

What should I do to request a diversion if only tower is available when I want to divert due to low fuel? I had to divert from RPLL to RPLC earlier today and I just requested departure to the north. Is that the correct way to do it?

Were you able to announce low fuel to tower?

Yes, requesting departure is correct way to let the controller know you’re diverting,controller will then issue a frequency change and you can proceed to the nearest practical airport in such condition.


That is the correct case within an approach frequency, he is asking for a tower case.


Yeah I called in low fuel and was given a diversion message. Changed my flight plan to RPLC and landed there.
Just a random question, if I need to leave and re-enter tower airspace during a diversion do I need to request a transition?
