There have been large-scale protests and demonstrations in Santiago and other major cities in Chile, which has resulted in injuries and loss of lives. The situation remains volatile. Singaporeans are advised to defer non-essential travel to cities affected by the protests.
Singaporeans currently in the affected areas are advised to exercise caution, stay vigilant, monitor developments through local media and heed the instructions of the local authorities. Avoid reported locations of protests and stay indoors in a safe location. Do stay in touch with your family and friends so that they know you are safe.
