Session information

3.11 Security

As in all large cities, it is essential to observe reasonable security precautions and guard against the danger of falling victim to any of the fraudulent practices to which tourists may be exposed - through, for example, spurious requests for financial assistance, offers of goods and services, exchange of foreign currency, etc.

Thus, prudence and sound judgement should be exercised at all times, whether in the hotel, on the street, in a taxi or simply telephoning.

It is also recommended that you obtain a security update from the travel section prior to undertaking any travel outside Metro Manila.

In case of any emergency, the Regional Office's 24-hour telephone numbers are (63 2) 528 8001 and (63 2) 303 1000.
