France remains at risk of terrorist attacks. Following the deadly knife attack on 29 October 2020 in Nice, the national security alert system – Vigipirate - has been raised to the highest level of “Attack Emergency”. It is a state of maximum vigilance and protection which is imposed directly after an attack or when the threat of another attack is imminent. It allows the authorities to increase surveillance or controls, and employ exceptional security measures.
Protests can take place without notice in France. These can turn violent and disrupt traffic and public transportation. Singaporeans are advised to avoid such protests, heed the instructions of local authorities, and exercise vigilance.
