USA issues new travel advisory to its citizens for Pakistan, India

US President Donald

Some examples of countries listed at level two at the time of publication include Mexico, due to crime in certain areas, and the United Kingdom, due to elevated risks of terrorism. It urges travelers to stay away from the states of Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa and Tamaulipas (all level 4).

U.S. citizens are simply advised to exercise increased caution in Uganda due to crime.

Individually, Mexican states that fell into Tier 2 included Baja California and Baja California Sur. The one exception is North Korea, where the State Department has prohibited citizens from using their USA passports to visit without first obtaining a waiver.

Countries on Level 4 are Yemen, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Somalia, Mali, North Korea, South Sudan and Central African Republic.

It is also suggested that U.S. citizens "reconsider travel to Nairobi neighbourhood of Eastleigh at all times and Old Town in Mombasa at night due to crime".

Commenting on the news, U.S. Ambassador to Athens Geoffrey Pyatt stressed he looks forward to seeing more tourists in Greece in 2018: "Greece at the best level of the State Department's new Travel Advisory Program".

North Korea is also Level Four, with the additional restriction that USA law prohibits American travellers from using their passports there, effectively banning visits.

Officials in the Kenyan government and the country's tourism industry are likely to welcome the changes initiated by the Trump administration.

"These are not political documents".

Slovakia is a safe country and people travelling there need only take normal precautions.

Ops will move to north this year: Army Chief
Chinese troops were very well equipped. "We have focused too long on the western side (bordering Pakistan)", the Army chief said. To a question about Chinese incursions into India, he said, "We will not allow our territory to be invaded by anyone".

There were, however, some surprises in the new rankings.

There are new modifications to the Department of State's travel advisories Wednesday afternoon.

In September, the agency stated in a travel warning that, "numerous U.S. Embassy Havana employees have been targeted in specific attacks", suffering "significant injuries as a effect of these attacks".

"Consider carefully whether to use the Likoni ferry in Mombasa due to safety concerns", the advisory adds. "These are simply based on our assessment of the security situation", senior consular official Michelle Bernier-Toth said.

Level 3 - Reconsider Travel: Avoid travel due to serious risks to safety and security.

Americans are also advised not to travel to Pak-Occupied Kashmir due to terrorism and the potential for armed conflict. At least 15 United Nations peacekeepers have also been killed in the country in recent weeks.

Singapore has been classified as a Level One country under the new U.S. travel warning system.

The change comes in response to persistent general confusion over the meaning of warnings issued under the previous system, according to a State Department spokesperson.

"We let people know what restrictions we've imposed on ourselves", Bernier-Toth said.

"I personally was exhausted of explaining the difference between a travel warning and a travel alert, even to some of my colleagues", she said.
