Pakistan Travel Advice

Summary of The FCO and GOV & Travel Advice for Pakistan

The FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) in the UK and other Government agencies such as the USA, Canada, Australia, etc. highlight the risk level and outline advice for travel to Pakistan. As a matter of fact, the FCO and Government agencies clearly advise people traveling to Pakistan or elsewhere in the world to make their own decision when traveling abroad.

Whether it is FCO or any other Government eg. USA, Canada, Australia, etc. the purpose of their travel advice is to provide objective information! That is the reason that you often see statements such as “No foreign travel can be guaranteed as safe and you take personal responsibility for any trip you make abroad” in their travel advisories.

Not only the FCO travel advice but perhaps it is the travel advice from most other Governments, that they don’t assume any responsibility including legal responsibility. In their travel advice statements, they clearly say that “they can’t be held responsible for any travel decisions or for the effect on their travel decision when making travel decisions based on their travel advice”.

“I am delighted to be welcoming British Airways back to Pakistan. The launch of direct flights by British Airways between London Heathrow and Islamabad’s new International Airport is excellent news for both countries. The links between Britain and Pakistan are already extraordinary – from culture and cricket to people, politics, and education. I see this launch as a vote of confidence in the future of those links – and, of course, a reflection of the great improvements in the security situation in Pakistan in recent years.

 

The return of British Airways will give a particular boost to our growing trade and investment links. British Airways itself joins an increasing number of British companies doing business in Pakistan. I hope too that it will allow more people from the UK to discover as I have, what a beautiful country Pakistan is. I look forward to using the service myself when the flight starts in June.”

 

Thomas Drew CMG, Director General, Consular and Security at the FCO Foreign and Commonwealth Office and former British High Commissioner to Pakistan.

“Tourism is a multi-billion industry across the world which certainly brings more business as it enables people from different parts of the world to go and see the places of business opportunities. Unfortunately, the greed for money motivates some regimes and thus they start to propagate propaganda news about the safety of other countries in the form of fake travel advice so that they can deter tourists from a legitimate safe destination such as Pakistan that the tourist otherwise would love to visit. Avoid listing to false travel advice, even if it appears to come from a so-called authoritative government source”. (Visit Swat Valley, Pakistan)

Do your research, the best people to ask about the safety issues in Pakistan is to listen to the advice of people who already have traveled to Pakistan. Listen to their personal travel experience in Pakistan and then make an informed decision on your trip to Pakistan. Don’t be a victim of the false propaganda news machines and don’t let the so-called government authoritative sources and their biased advice and opinions to reform your travel decisions to Pakistan through their politically motivated agenda”. (Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation)

Risk Assessment & Travel Advice for Foreigns Visiting Pakistan 

Although the Government of Pakistan advises that Pakistan is a safe country for both locals and foreign tourists, the country still inherent risks that may pose danger.

Some of these risks might be very trivial and the others might be life-threatening but those may not be directly related to you. For example, deep-sea underwater diving or climbing to the extreme heights of K2 in Pakistan might be significantly risky and life-threatening for someone with medical conditions. On the other hand, these activities can be of great fun for anyone who is healthy and who follows the correct guidelines.

Having said that, the decision to travel to Pakistan is your own choice and you are responsible for your personal safety yet the following chart may help you to identify some of the risks.

1. Health Risks in Pakistan

Unwanted health issues are a top concern, especially if you are traveling to a country where diet and hygiene is vastly different to what you are used to. Conditions like stomach flu, vomiting, and diarrhea can quickly ruin a trip.

2. Scamming Risks Pakistan

Travelers run the risk of becoming potential targets for scammers, especially if you don’t speak the language or are unfamiliar with the culture.

3. Theft Risks in Pakistans

Nothing will spoil your globe-trotting shenanigans like getting your passport, money or other valuables stolen.

4. Violence Risks in Pakistan

Travelers may find themselves getting caught in a violent crime, particularly if you are unaware of the locations that you are venturing into.

5. Transportation Risks in Pakistan

Transportation problems can be another issue, especially if you are traveling to a country that is notorious for transport accidents, has complicated (or nonexistent) public transport schedules or is known for its traffic congestion.

6. Natural catastrophes Risks in Pakistan

Depending on where you are traveling, disasters such as earthquakes, typhoons, hurricanes, and other unforeseen natural disasters could arise.

7. War or political unrest in Pakistan

Although much less common than other risks, depending on the country or region you are traveling to, political risks could pose a problem.
