UK Issues Travel Advisory for its Citizens in Pakistan

The most recent travel advisory from the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) strongly discourages British nationals from traveling to specific regions in Pakistan.

 The advisory particularly highlights areas near the Pakistan and Afghanistan border, urging against all travel within 10 miles of this border.

 Additionally, the advisory identifies other unsafe regions, including parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).

 British nationals are advised to avoid various specific locations within these regions, with a detailed list provided in the advisory.

For Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the mentioned areas include Bajaur, Bannu, Buner, Charsadda, Dera Ismail Khan, Khyber, Kohat, Kurram, Lakki Marwat, Lower Dir, Mohmand, Orakzai, Peshawar (including the city), Swat, Tank, North Waziristan, Upper South Waziristan, Lower South Waziristan, the Karakoram Highway between Mansehra and Chilas, and the N45 Highway from the north of the Mardan ring road to the edge of Chitral City.

In Balochistan, the FCDO strongly recommends against all travel to the province, except for essential travel to specific areas on the southern coast, such as the section of the N10 motorway and the N25 from the N10/N25 intersection to the Balochistan-Sindh border, including the port city of Gwadar.

Regarding AJK, British nationals are advised against all travel within 10 miles of the Line of Control (LOC), which serves as the military control line between AJK and the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

For Sindh Province, the FCDO suggests avoiding all but essential travel to areas north of and including the city of Nawabshah.

 Importantly, the advisory warns of potential consequences for those who disregard this advice, including the risk of invalidating their travel insurance.
