Tour India with ‘increased caution’ says new US travel advisory

The United States Department of State issued a new system this week to inform citizens on the safety and security of countries worldwide. Level 1 advises travellers to exercise normal precaution, while Level 4, which has countries like Afghanistan, recommends "Do Not Travel".

"For instance, we may advise USA citizens to "Exercise Increased Caution" (Level 2) in a country, but to "Reconsider Travel" (Level 3) to a particular area within the country", the statement said. Travelers already in those countries are advised to leave as soon as it is safe.

Georgia was listed as level 1, the category described as "the lowest advisory level for safety and security risk".

N - Natural Disaster: A natural disaster, or its aftermath, poses danger.

What were previously referred to as "warnings" and "alerts" are being re-classified as "advisories", accompanied by a color and number-based system with detailed descriptions on why an advisory has been issued.

The new advisory has come days after the United States chose to cut down $225 million military aid to the country.

China warns of USA protectionism after Huawei setback
Then along comes the Huawei Mate 10 , a smartphone that's very almost as much of a flagship as any of those phones. The Commerce Department is also said to be investigating Huawei's dealings with sanctioned nations.


If one goes through the travel advisory issued by the United States for its citizens, India has nothing much to cheer.

O - Other: There are potential risks not covered by previous risk indicators.

While alerts were generally shorter-term or related to specific events, and warnings were meant to be stronger, the new system is created to provide additional clarity and guidance. Here's a complete list of every country's rating.

"Levels One and Two will be reviewed every year, if not more frequently, depending on circumstances". These include France and Belgium, where an ISIS cell conducted deadly attacks in 2015 and 2016, as well as Germany, where a truck plowed into a group of people at a Christmas market in December 2016. Some people would have no second thoughts of traveling to Iran, for example, which is rated Level 4.

The Uganda section makes no mention of threats to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-gender or intersex persons, despite passage of a law in 2013, later annulled by the country's Constitutional Court, that mandated life imprisonment for "aggravated homosexuality". Will Americans now hesitate to visit Denmark, a Level 2? These advisory levels are simply a tool for you to use, and could impact world travel in some pretty meaningful ways.

Pyatt argued that obstacles must be overcome including those related to privatizations and economic reforms such as the frequent changes in the tax and regulatory regime which risk scaring away foreign capital at the moment when Greece is poised to move forward.
