HK cautions residents vs visiting parts of Mindanao
Hong Kong is cautioning its residents against going to parts of Mindanao due to the “unpredictable” security situation there.
In a Feb. 12 update to its travel advice to the Philippines, Hong Kong urged residents to avoid non-essential travel to such areas.
“Residents should avoid all non-essential travel to eastern Mindanao and avoid all travel to central and western Mindanao due to the unpredictable security situation,” it said (http://www.sb.gov.hk/eng/ota/note-Philippines.htm).
It added residents intending to visit the Philippines or are already there should “monitor the situation, exercise caution and attend to personal safety.”
On the other hand, it said those already in the Philippines who need assistance may call the 24-hour hotline of the Assistance to Hong Kong Residents Unit (AHU) of the Immigration Department at (852)1868.
They may also contact the consular protection hotline of the Chinese Embassy and Consulate-General in the Philippines at:
– Embassy: (63) 9178972695
– Consulate-General in Cebu: (63) 9175495614
– Consulate-General in Laoag: (63) 9178051226)
