100 foreigners stranded in Negros Occidental

AROUND 100 foreigners remain stranded in Negros Occidental amid the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine.

Based on records of the Negros Occidental Provincial Tourism Division, the group consists of 29 Germans, 23 Canadians, 18 Americans, 14 Swiss, five British, four Austrians, and three Australians.

The office also confirmed the group included Czech, Dutch, French, Hungarian, Slovakian, and Japanese nationals.

The Provincial Government is now trying to facilitate the repatriation of the foreign nationals, and in the meantime, they have requested the local government units to accommodate the individuals, especially those who cannot yet travel due the imposed restrictions.

The office added that the 55 Koreans who were stranded in the province have been successfully repatriated last week, after the South Korean Embassy chartered a Cebu Pacific flight to bring them home.

Also included in the repatriation were nine Singaporeans, 12 Japanese, and eight Taiwanese nationals.
