Australia revised and reissued today its travel advisory on the Philippines removing the reference to “imminent” threat of terrorist attack in Manila but the overall level of travel advice has not changed.
The main change in the travel advisory is the removal of the language that was added on the November 2 travel advice referring to “imminent” threat of terrorist attack in Manila.
In its November 2 travel advisory, Australia said reliable reports indicate that terrorist attacks may be imminent in Manila, including places frequented by foreigners such as large shopping malls and convention centres.
Australia is among the five countries that issued last month a travel advisory on the Philippines warning their nationals against possible terror attacks in the country.
Australia urged its nationals to exercise a high degree of caution in the Philippines because of the high threat of terrorist attack and the high level of serious crime.
The reissued travel advisory retained the pre-existing language on terrorism and also no change in the level.
