MANILA - The Philippine Embassy in Riyadh on Monday said Yemen remains under Alert Level 2 in view of the current political and security situation in that country.

Under Alert Level 2, only Filipinos with existing labor contracts may return to Yemen. The deployment of newly-hired overseas Filipino workers remains suspended.

"All Filipinos in Yemen are therefore advised to restrict non-essential movements and avoid public places," the embassy said in a statement.

The Embassy is also urging all Filipinos in all cities and regions of Yemen to update their registration with the Embassy.

Filipinos in Yemen who have not registered in the past can accomplish the registration form on the website of the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh.
