The Department of Tourism (DOT) expresses complete confidence that the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) are on top of the national security situation in Central Visayas.
In this connection, we are actively coordinating for updates with our local and national security and law enforcement agencies who are fully capable of putting travellers’ concerns at ease.
Proper authorities have assured that both international and domestic travellers may continue with their travel plans, even as we remind all stakeholders of usual safety precautions that must be routinely observed at all destinations. We would like to take this opportunity to impart our utmost gratitude to the selfless dedication of our military and police personnel in ensuring that the country remain a safe and peaceful haven to visit.
