Travel Advice

The Travel Advisory for Pakistan has been reviewed and reissued on Tuesday, 16 January 2018

On 15 January 2018, the US advised its citizens that US Embassy personnel are avoiding movements within sectors F-8, F-9, G-8 and G-9 in Islamabad, including all major intersections.  The staff of the Australian High Commission have been provided with this advice. Avoid these areas and be alert at all times elsewhere in Islamabad. The level of our advice has not changed. Reconsider your need to travel to Pakistan overall. Higher levels apply in some parts of the country.

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