The Foreign and Commonwealth Office today revised its travel advice for Pakistan. As the situation in Karachi has gradually returned to normal over the last few days we are no longer advising against all but essential travel there.

The relevant summary point now reads:

“We advise against all but essential travel to Quetta (Balochistan) and we advise against using the rail network or bus services in the whole of Balochistan because of the unsettled security situation. See the Terrorism & Sectarian Violence section of this advice for more details.”


Notes for Editors
The advice previously read:


“We advise against all but essential travel to Karachi (Sindh), Quetta (Balochistan) and we advise against using the rail network or bus services in the whole of Balochistan because of the unsettled security situation. See the Terrorism & Sectarian Violence section of this advice for more details.”

Full details of the revised travel advice for Pakistan are available on the Foreign Office website (www.fco.gov.uk).

FCO Travel Advice can also be obtained on the following telephone number: 0845 850 2829.

FCO Travel Advice is kept under constant review. This advice is based on our latest assessment of the situation in Pakistan.
