Travel ban in full: Philippines bans entry to all foreign nationals and residents, including foreigners.

The Philippines has imposed a nationwide travel ban on all Filipinos, with all travel to the United States blocked.

President Rodrigo Duterte said on Sunday the Philippines was ready to open up to the outside world but would maintain a tight control on its borders.

“If the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) decides to lift the travel ban and allow us to reopen our doors, we will accept it,” he said.

Duterte has said the travel restrictions will be lifted in two to three weeks.

The president said the Philippines will continue to cooperate with UNSC resolution 1874, which allows the Philippines to impose a travel ban.

The UNSC also decided to impose sanctions on the government of Myanmar over its handling of the Rohingya Muslim refugees in Myanmar.

The Myanmar government and Rohingya have been living in refugee camps in Rakhine State, a mainly Buddhist region in northern Rakhines state.

The government has denied responsibility for the deaths of at least 1,200 Rohingya Muslims and says its security forces are acting in self-defence.

The move comes as Myanmar struggles to deal with the rise of a separatist movement that has seized territory and is waging a military campaign against the government.

The United States and Australia are among other countries to suspend military cooperation with Myanmar amid accusations of human rights abuses and widespread atrocities against the Rohingya.
