From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On martial law’s impact on tourism

We understand the concern of foreign tourists. Safety is on top of their minds.

As you would recall, travel advisories from different embassies have been issued after martial law was declared in the whole island of Mindanao. It is therefore expected that there are some tourists who opted to rebook to other destinations.

We remain optimistic that things would bounce back once the peace, order and normalcy have been restored in Marawi.
