France also remains at risk of terrorist attacks. France’s national security alert system – Vigipirate, is currently at a threat level of “Heightened Security/Risk of Attack” (Tier 2). Security measures such as increased surveillance and bag checks at transportation hubs, shopping centres, major tourist attractions, schools and government buildings are in place.
Singaporeans, who are either travelling to or already in France, are advised to monitor the media and exercise caution. They should avoid large gatherings and demonstrations, heed the instructions of local authorities, and be vigilant in crowded and popular tourist areas as well as transportation hubs. Due to possible disruptions of traffic circulation and public transport, they are also advised to allow for more time to get from one place to another.
