The Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) announced on Thursday, October 24, that increased security measures will be implemented at all PPA-operated ports in the Philippines ahead of two major catholic events scheduled to take place on Friday, November 1, and Saturday, November 2. According to PPA, the increased number of passengers during the catholic holidays makes ports vulnerable to possible terror attacks.
An increased security presence, increased processing time, and police checkpoints are to be expected.
Individuals travelling through the Philippines' ports are advised monitor the situation, to allow extra travel time, and to follow instructions issued by the local authorities.
