DUBAI – Amid violent street protests in Hong Kong, the UAE Consulate there has issued a travel advisory to visitors of the Chinese special administrative region.
“The Consulate of the UAE in Hong Kong advises citizens to take precautions and avoid places near government and private buildings during weekends. Please follow the news and instructions of local authorities, and do not wear white and black clothes,” the UAE consulate warned.
The mission also urged citizens to contact 800 44444 or +852-2866-1823 in case of emergency, and advised traveller to register with the Twajudi service offered by the ministry.
Weeks of demonstrations in Hong Kong began when the government introduced a controversial bill that would have enabled extraditions to mainland China.
