Travel Advice

The Travel Advisory for Pakistan has been reviewed and reissued on Thursday, 1 November 2018

Political organisations are staging demonstrations across Pakistan following the verdict in a high-profile blasphemy case. Some are blocking roads between major cities. Avoid protests, which can turn violent with little warning. Monitor the media and other sources for news of planned or possible unrest (see 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
