MANILA, Philippines — The government is not imposing any restrictions on travel to France in the wake of Friday’s Paris terrorist attacks, the Department of Foreign Affairs said Monday.
It did advise Filipinos to “exercise caution and vigilance” and urged them, “as long as necessary,” to “stay indoors, avoid unnecessary movement, monitor the news and be guided by announcements from authorities.”
“However, there is no travel restriction in place as of this time,” the DFA said in a statement.
It noted that “French authorities have opened a special telephone line for families of victims needing assistance: 0800 40 60 05” and also pointed Filipinos in France to the website of France’s Ministry of the Interior (www.interieur.gouv.fr), which “has updated information regarding the events that have unfolded and the measures that are being taken.”
It also gave the emergency number of the Philippine embassy in Paris: 06 20 59 25 15.
