Mexico Travel Warning 2018: 5 Places You Should NOT Visit

Greece at lowest risk level, says US State Department

Under the new system, every country has a travel advisory and is placed in one of these four categories.

The U.S. State Department updated its warning system and how it conveys information about the risks of traveling to other countries, in a bid to make these warnings easier to understand.

Reconsider Travel (orange): This advisory level designates areas where there are significant safety and security risk.

Level 4 is for do-not-travel countries, those with a "greater likelihood of life-threatening risks" in which the US government may be limited in its ability to help.

The US State Department identified "crime and terrorism" in India, while ranking at Level 2, advising Americans to exercise increased caution while visiting India.

It also added that the US government has "limited ability" to provide emergency services to its citizens in rural areas of eastern Maharashtra and northern Telangana through western West Bengal, where Maoist extremist groups are present, since they require special authorization to visit. That puts them in the same tier as several of the world's most war-torn countries, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Yemen.

Tamaulipas on the USA border and Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero on the Pacific coast.

In place of the previous system of alerts and advisories, the new ratings establish advisory levels (reminiscent of the now-defunct Homeland Security Advisory System) which correspond to escalating levels of insecurity.

"Reconsider travel to Pakistan due to terrorism". While we will issue an overall Travel Advisory level for every country, levels of advice may vary for specific locations or areas within a country.

The State Department has announced a major change to how it issues travel advisories.

Americans are advised not to travel to Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

Countries ranked at Level Three include Cuba, Dominica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Lebanon, Sudan, Nigeria, Turkey, Pakistan, Russia and Venezuela.

Esponda said local officials and tourism operators are investing in increased security, including camera systems and the construction of a new marine base.

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

"We often got questions from people saying, 'I read your travel warning, but what does that mean, what am I supposed to do?'" Bernier-Toth said during a State Department call early Wednesday.
