USA advises citizens against visiting Pakistan in new travel advisory

For a time, in October, the State Department had warned USA citizens not to travel to Cuba because of mysterious health attacks suffered by several US diplomatic employees living in Havana.

The State Department is trying to make it easier for USA travelers to understand and access security information about their travel destinations with the rollout of a new travel advisory program.

The new system ranks countries from one to four on a sliding scale of increasing danger, with No. 1 suggesting normal precautions while traveling, and No. 2 suggesting increased precaution.

"This is the lowest advisory level for safety and security risk", the State Department informed.

In the new program, Kenya has placed in the second level, where U.S. advises citizens visiting countries in this category to "exercise increased caution". Countries in this list include Russian Federation and Turkey.

The content of the Kenya section in the new system is similar to evaluations issued by the Obama administration.

Additionally, several Mexican states were rated Tier 3, meaning Americans should "reconsider travel" to the areas.

Zoo visitors, however, shouldn't expect to see any lions, elephants or gorillas native to Africa on view. Warming shelters were opened across the South as freeze watches and warnings blanketed the region.

"But essentially how we assess the threat level in a country hasn't changed". Although the rankings for safety have been announced according to nation, the State Department specified that in some cases the levels of safety may differ in different areas of a nation. During an emergency, the USA government may have very limited ability to provide assistance.

Malaysia is now ranked among the safest nations in a new travel advisory issued by the United States.

To warn travelers of potential dangers overseas, the US State Department has updated its travel advisory for countries, including India and Pakistan.

The travel advisory comes on the heels of suspension of aid to Pakistan as outlined by President Trump in his first tweet of 2018, alleging that Pakistan responded with deceit and lies against the $33b provided to it, a claim Pakistan rejects both in terms of statistics and observation.

Meanwhile, alerts, such as hurricane warnings, demonstration alerts and other considerations, will continue to be released from the State Department's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.

The travel advisory further points out high-risk areas in the country that citizens should avoid. North Korea is the exception to that rule, since the United States banned travel on American passports to that country over the summer.
