The US State Department said on Monday that in view of COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a ‘level three’ travel health notice for India.
The US has changed the travel advisory for India to ‘Level Three’ from the highest ‘Level Four’. ‘Level four’ means no travel at all and ‘Level three’ requests citizens to reconsider their travel. The US has also improved the travel advisory for Pakistan from ‘Level Four’ to ‘Level Three’. However, due to terrorism and sectarian violence, US citizens have been asked to reconsider their visit to Pakistan.
The Ministry of External Affairs on Monday revised the travel advisories of India and Pakistan after considering the situation of the COVID-19 global pandemic in the region. The Ministry of External Affairs said on Monday that in view of COVID-19, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a ‘level three’ travel health notice for India. When the travel advisories were issued last month, India was grappling with a second wave of Corona. During that time three lakh new cases were being reported every day.
Emphasis on vaccination before international travel
The Ministry of External Affairs said, if you have taken the full dose of the anti-COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the FDA, then your risk of getting infected and showing severe symptoms may be reduced. Please review CDC’s specific recommendations for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers before planning any international travel. Reconsider traveling to India due to COVID-19. Be careful because of crime and terrorism.
These instructions were given regarding Pakistan
Although the CDC had issued a ‘Level Two’ travel health notice for Pakistan in view of the COVID-19 situation, the State Department has retained the ‘Level Three’ advisory in view of the terrorism situation in the country. The ministry said, due to terrorism and communal violence, reconsider your visit to Pakistan. Due to COVID-19, vigilance has been increased regarding Pakistan. The danger has increased in some areas. Read the travel advisory thoroughly.
