New Zealand Embassy Manila, The Philippines
Tsunami warning for the Philippines
We remind New Zealanders in the Philippines to register their presence and make sure their contact details are up to date.
The major earthquake that occurred recently in Chile and sent a tsunami across the Pacific was a timely reminder that it’s important for New Zealanders visiting or living overseas to register on the ‘Safetravel’ website.
If you are registered the New Zealand Embassy can contact you with timely warnings about natural disasters, terrorism or civil disturbances. We can also pass on messages in case of family emergencies.
Registration is completely confidential and no details are passed on to anyone else.
If you haven’t registered we encourage you to do so. It’s quick and easy (and free!) and can be done on-line at www.safetravel.govt.nz.
If you have already registered please visit the site now and make sure all your details are up to date.
In the case of the Chilean earthquake and subsequent tsunami warnings, we were able to contact New Zealanders recorded as living in the vulnerable areas to find out about their safety and pass on information.
