Singapore government tells citizens to avoid travelling to Maldives

Singapore City, Feb 7 (IBNS): The Singapore government has urged all its citizens to avoid travelling to Maldives, as the latter is undergoing a state of emergency amid severe political crisis.

"In view of the unstable situation in the Maldives, Singaporeans are advised to defer all non-essential travel to the Maldives until the situation stabilises," Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

"Singapore has no diplomatic representation in the Maldives which constrains our ability to extend consular assistance in an emergency," the statement read.

However, for those Singaporeans who are already in Maldives, the government has urged them to avoid public gatherings and protests.

"You should avoid protest and large public gatherings. You should also purchase comprehensive travel insurance and be familiar with the terms and coverage," the advisory read.
