Avoid going to Bangkok: MFA
SINGAPOREANS should not travel to Bangkok unless there is a pressing need, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
In a statement issued on Tuesday after a state of emergency was declared in Bangkok, MFA advised Singaporeans to postpone their travel to a later date.
It also urged Singaporeans to register with the ministry if they do decide to travel to Bangkok.
When in Bangkok, Singaporeans are advised to avoid areas where there is a risk of disturbance, for example, the Government House.
They should also take the necessary precautions for their personal safety.
Singaporeans should monitor the local news diligently and be prepared to face inconveniences in their travel.
Should Singaporeans require assistance, they can contact the Singapore Embassy in
Bangkok or the MFA Duty Officer (24-hours) at:
Embassy of the Republic of Singapore 129 South Sathorn Road, Bangkok 10120
