US warns its citizens to be cautious while traveling to India

US advisory to citizens visiting India Greece at lowest risk level, says US State Department

According to Bernier-Toth, the improvement was the first major step in many years and added that the information on the safety state of each nation were by "various parties".

Through the four-tiered system, launched by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs, countries are ranked from level one to four, with level one being of lowest travel risk.

The United States of America, in an updated Level-2 travel advisory issued today, asked its citizens to "exercise increased caution" due to "crime and terrorism".

"Because our personnel's safety is at risk, and we are unable to identify the source of the attacks, we believe USA citizens may also be at risk and warn them not to travel to Cuba", the travel warning noted. Level three countries include Russian Federation, due to civil unrest in certain areas, and Venezuela, due to crime and a limited ability of the U.S. to provide assistance to citizens.

Citizens are advised to "exercise increased caution: Be aware of heightened risks to safety and security".

Officials in the Kenyan government and the country's tourism industry are likely to welcome the changes initiated by the Trump administration. Now every country has a travel advisory based on this system, which has replaced all the previous such advisories.

Kobach says canceling Trump voter panel will actually speed up investigation
The panel was heavily criticized by Democrats , who said it was a tool for Republicans to suppress minority voter turnout. It calls for transparency from the commission but applauds states that defy requests for public information.


Also provided with the new alerts are clear reasons for the advisories - with "C" for crime, meaning widespread violent or organized crime is present, "T" for terrorism, meaning terrorist attacks have occurred; and "U" denoting civil unrest, meaning political, economic, religious, and/or ethnic instability exists. When visiting countries in that grouping, U.S. citizens are urged to "exercise increased caution".

The advisory said that Americans deciding to visit India must not travel alone, particularly if they were women.

For instance, India is ranked Level 2 (exercise increased caution) and Pakistan has been given Level 3 (reconsider travel).

"US citizens who travel overseas should always have a contingency plan for emergency situations, " the advisory said.

"We needed to make it more accessible to people".

The arch-nemesis of world's superpower, North Korea is also in Level Four, with the additional restriction that USA law prohibits American travellers from using their passports there, effectively banning visits to the Kim led-state. Americans wishing to travel there "must apply for a one-time waiver and provide justification as to why they need to go", Ms Bernier-Toth said.
