Tour India with 'increased caution', says new U.S. travel advisory

Tour India with 'increased caution', says new U.S. travel advisory

The U.S. State Department launched its new travel advisory system Wednesday, the same day issued a "do not travel" warning to five Mexican states because of crime.

Travel Advisories apply up to four standard levels of advice, give a description of the risks, and provide clear actionable steps US citizens should take, according to a statement issued by the US Embassy in Athens. There is some risk in any global travel. This level advises travelers to "be aware of heightened risks to safety and security", in addition to more specific advice for each country provided by the State Department. The new travel system ranks Pakistan on Level 3 titled as "Reconsider Travel". During an emergency, the USA government may have very limited ability to provide assistance.

Eleven countries come with the do-not-travel recommendation, most in Africa and the Middle East: Mali, Central African Republic, Libya, South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and North Korea.

Tamaulipas on the USA border and Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero on the Pacific coast.

Despite the advisory of large crime, reports from the Interior Ministry show that crime statistics have fallen by nearly ten percent within the last decade and 96 of its criminal gangs have been dismantled.

Now every country has a travel advisory based on this system, replacing all previous travel advisories.

The United States also cautioned its citizens to "reconsider travel" to Pakistan. A State Department official told Travel Agent that all existing information has been converted to the new products under the new travel warning system. It also listed many regions in the country, such as Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), under the most unsafe Level 4 category.

The State Department noted that there "are no US government restrictions" in tourist areas in both those states, including Ensenada, Rosarito, Tijuana, Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo and La Paz.

The advisory further suggested that Americans desiring to visit India must not travel alone, particularly if they were women.

"Terrorists have targeted United States diplomats and diplomatic facilities in the past, and evidence suggests they continue to do so", the advisory explained.

The advisory noted that the USA government is unable to provide any consular services to its citizens from the Consulate General in Peshawar. The U.S. Government has special instructions for anyone who must travel to areas with this designation.
