In recent weeks, several large-scale protests have taken place at multiple venues in Hong Kong. Cases of localised clashes following these protests were reported. Protests which are meant to be peaceful could potentially turn violent with little or no notice. Singaporeans are advised to avoid any reported locations of upcoming protest rallies and other large public gatherings.
The Hong Kong International Airport has cancelled all remaining incoming and outgoing flights on 12 August in view of the ongoing protests at the airport. Singaporeans are advised to check with their airlines on updates.
If you are already in Hong Kong, you should take all necessary precautions to ensure your personal safety. You are advised to stay vigilant, monitor developments through the local news, and heed the instructions of the local authorities. You may wish to follow the Hong Kong Police Force on their social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter) for latest updates. The latest information on special traffic arrangements is avaliable at here. You should avoid protests and large public gatherings, and stay in touch with your family and friends so that they know you are safe.
