CRIME

Petty crime occurs at the airport and in tourist areas, particularly in and around casinos.

Ensure that your personal belongings, including your passport and other travel documents, are secure at all times.

TENSIONS ON THE KOREAN PENINSULA

Tensions on the neighbouring Korean Peninsula could escalate with little notice and the security situation could deteriorate suddenly.

Tensions may increase before, during and after North Korean nuclear and missile tests, military exercises or as the result of incidents or military activities at or near the inter-Korean border.

Monitor developments, remain vigilant and follow the instructions of local authorities.
