The Travel Advisory for Pakistan has been reviewed and reissued on Monday, 19 March 2018
General elections will be held in mid-2018. Previously there has been a spike in violence and terrorist attacks in the months leading up to and immediately after elections. Avoid demonstrations, political events, rallies, processions and large-scale public gatherings as they may turn violent. The Pakistan Super League finals will be held in mid-March. Terrorist attacks have occurred at large sporting events. Follow local advice, and monitor the media for developments that may affect your safety and security. 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 www.smartraveller.gov.au.
