The United States has issued a new travel advisory for its citizens, ranking nations safety from Level 1 to Level 4, depending on how safe the nation is to be travelled to.
Countries have been issuing travel advisories for its citizens time and again, considering the present global scenario.
The MTB said the new system is an improvement based on its organization and simplicity, and noted that the State Department "confirmed that major global tourist destinations in Mexico are safe" and have no travel restrictions. Azerbaijan has been included in the list of countries where the United States citizens are recommended to exercise increased caution due to the increased risk of terrorism.
Level 3 - Reconsider Travel: Avoid travel due to serious risks to safety and security.
The travel advisory asks USA citizens not to travel to Jammu and Kashmir, except east Ladakh and Leh, due to the existence of "terrorism and civil unrest". During an emergency, the USA government may have very limited ability to provide assistance. Afghanistan was placed in Level 4, "Do not travel" category for reasons that included terrorism, civil unrest and armed conflict.
The Level 4 restrictions on five of Mexico's 31 states can be seen as a road map of drug cartel operations.
The advisory informed it's citizens that rape was the fastest growing crime in India.
Tamaulipas - located on the USA border - and Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero on the Pacific coast have a level four "do not travel" advisory, marking the highest warning issued by the department. This program also remains a recommended path to receiving updates to travel advisories going forward.
Worldwide, the new advisories will also include up to seven indicators created to clarify reasons for the warnings: C for crime, T for terrorism, U for civil unrest, H for health, N for natural disasters (and the aftermath), E for time-limited events (like elections) and O for other. 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 full travel advisory for Greece can be found here. While alerts were generally shorter-term or related to specific events, and warnings were meant to be stronger, the new system is created to provide additional clarity and guidance. Currently, countries like Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy and Spain are listed here.
Countries ranked at Level Three include Cuba, Dominica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Lebanon, Sudan, Nigeria, Turkey, Pakistan, Russia and Venezuela.
