Canada issues regional travel advisory for Philippines

A regional travel advisory for the Philippines has been issued by the Canadian government, due to current threats of terrorist attacks and kidnapping in parts of the country.

The notice advises against all travel to the following parts of the Philippines: the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (consisting of Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Lanao del Sur and Maguindanao provinces), as well as to the Zamboanga Peninsula and the provinces of Sarangani, Lanao del Norte, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur (excluding urban areas of Davao City), Davao Occidental, Davao Oriental, Cotabato, South Cotabato, and Sultan Kudarat.

Travellers are also advised of the Canadian government’s limited ability to provide consular assistance in these regions.
