VAT Refund

Laws have changed recently from what I have read. In some other countries, tourists can receive a refund for the amount spent on VAT while in the Philippines. Is this a possibility in the Philippines or currently not? Different reports make it difficult to know what is happening. If so, do you go to a certain place in the airport to claim it back?

Thank you for your time.
