All nonnative Latter-day Saint missionaries are being sent home from 22 missions in the Philippines.

“With a new travel directive from the Philippines government, and due to a general disruption to their ability to carry out their service, all missionaries who are not native to the Philippines are being moved out of that country,” the church announced in a statement. “These missionaries will return to their home countries for new temporary assignments. They will begin their new assignments after completing a 14-day period of self-isolation at home as a precaution.”

The church previously sent home all nonnative missionaries from Mongolia on Feb. 27 and from Korea on March 5.

The church previously shut down its Hong Kong Mission.
