National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Når du rejser i Filippinerne bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed. Du bør være ekstra forsigtig især pga. risikoen for terror og kidnapning. De fleste danskere har dog ingen problemer under besøg i landet. Vi fraråder alle rejser til den vestlige del af øen Mindanao pga. høj risiko for terror og voldelige sammenstød mellem sikkerhedsstyrker og lokale oprørsgrupper. Det gælder provinserne North Cotabato, South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao, Sarangani, Lanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur og Misamis Occidental og Zamboanga-halvøen. Det gælder også hele Sulu-øgruppen, herunder Basilan, Jolo og Tawi-Tawi. Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til resten af øen Mindanao. Det gælder provinserne Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental, Compostela Valley, Davao Oriental, Surigao del Sur og Surigao del Norte, hvor øen Siargao dog er undtaget. Der er undtagelsestilstand på hele Mindanao, og du bør have helt særlige grunde til at besøge området.
