PCG urges OFWs to keep away from demonstrations
In view of the on-going mass protests in Hong Kong, the Philippine Consulate General advises our Filipino nationals in Hong Kong to keep away from demonstration areas which are generally concentrated outside the government central offices, particularly the Legislative Complex, in Admiralty and in Tamar Park.
Should our nationals find themselves among the crowds of protesters, they should exercise extreme caution and vigilance in order to keep themselves safe from any isolated act of violence that might occur.
The Consulate further advises the consular public that unless their need is absolutely immediate, they should consider rescheduling their consular transactions at the Consulate which is located very near the demonstration areas.
The Consulate requests our Filipinos in Hong Kong to keep themselves updated with the security situation in Hong Kong as of this time through media reports.
The Consulate shall continue to monitor the situation and provide public advisories from time to time as necessary.
For the public’s information and guidance.
