Travel Advice

The Travel Advisory for Pakistan has been reviewed and reissued on Wednesday, 18 February 2015

This Advice was last issued on Wednesday, 18 February 2015. The shooting of a doctor outside Islamabad's Shifa International Hospital on 14 February 2015, coupled with the deteriorating internal security situation in Pakistan, including increasing attacks on government facilities, may indicate militant plans to soon begin attacks on hospital facilities. The level of the advice has not changed. We continue to strongly advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel to Pakistan.

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