Washington, Aug 2 (Just News): The Department of State renewed its Travel Advisory for Pakistan on August 1. The Department continues to advise travelers to reconsider travel to Pakistan. This replaces the previous Travel Advisory issued on January 10, 2018.
The full text of the new Travel Advisory is as follows:
Pakistan – Level 3: Reconsider Travel
Reconsider travel to Pakistan due to terrorism. Some areas have increased risk. Please read the entire Travel Advisory.
Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Pakistan. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting transportation hubs, markets, shopping malls, military installations, airports, universities, tourist locations, schools, hospitals, places of worship, and government facilities. Terrorists have targeted U.S. diplomats and diplomatic facilities in the past, and information suggests they continue to do so
Terrorist attacks continue to happen across Pakistan, with most occurring in Balochistan and KPK, including the former FATA. Large-scale terrorist attacks have resulted in hundreds of casualties.
The U.S government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Pakistan due to the security environment. Travel by U.S. government personnel within Pakistan is restricted, and additional restrictions on movements by U.S. government personnel outside of U.S. diplomatic facilities may occur at any time, depending on local circumstances and security conditions, which can change suddenly.
The U.S Consulate General in Peshawar is unable to provide any consular services to U.S. citizens.
Due to risks to civil aviation operating within or near Pakistan, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) and/or a Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR). For more information, U.S. citizens should consult the Federal Aviation Administration’s Prohibitions, Restrictions, and Notices.
