If you’re in the Philippines and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. International airports are currently operating, but airlines are decreasing the number of flights in and out of the Philippines. If you can’t or don’t want to return to Australia, follow the advice of local authorities. Take care to minimise your risk of exposure to COVID-19 including by self-isolating. If you choose to stay, note our ability to provide consular assistance may be limited due to restrictions on movement and other services.
