Travel Advice

The Travel Advisory for Pakistan has been reviewed and reissued on Monday, 22 December 2014

This Advice was last issued on Monday, 22 December 2014. This advice contains new information in the Summary and under Safety and Security (on 21 December 2014, local authorities warned of a heightened threat of attack in Pakistan, including Islamabad, in coming days. Australians in Pakistan should minimise travel in public places and remain in a safe place until further notice. If you are in Pakistan and hold fears for your safety you should depart by commercial means if safe to do so). The level of advice has not changed. We continue to strongly advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel to Pakistan overall due to the unpredictable security situation, including the high threat of terrorist attack, kidnapping and sectarian violence. 

Further information is in the travel advice for Pakistan and our travel bulletin available at
