When India travels on a travel advisory, it’s worth checking your travel status
TRAVEL ADVISORY: India travel advisory issued as terror attack in US ‘more serious’ by the US Embassy article TRAFFIC advisory for India is to be issued tomorrow, the US embassy in Delhi said today.
India travel advisory has been issued as a precautionary measure, the embassy said.
The advisory covers Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Chennai Metropolitan Region, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Goa and West Bengal.
The travel advisory covers only the Indian capital.
“In this advisory, we have placed the highest priority on the safety and security of the citizens of India and the citizens in other countries of the world,” the US Ambassador to India in New Delhi, Michael K. Smith, said in a statement.
India is a country with a huge potential for international travel.
However, the country remains on high alert as of December 2016.
India has experienced two terror attacks in the past five years.
India’s national terror alert level was raised from “very high” to “critical” in December 2016 after the Mumbai terror attack.
The US Embassy in India issued a similar travel advisory last year.
The US embassy said the US Government has been in touch with the Indian government and the Indian Government is reviewing its travel advisory.
The travel advisory applies to all travel within India.
“We are aware of the travel advisory and are taking immediate action to ensure safety and safety of our citizens,” the embassy added.
India’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying it is a matter for the Indian authorities.
“India is concerned about any potential security threat posed by foreign nationals in India and considers the issue of foreign nationals residing in India as an important security concern,” the statement said.
“As the security of its citizens is of utmost importance to India, it is appropriate to provide appropriate information to the Government of India about the safety measures being implemented in the country.
The Government of Indian Army has been instructed to provide all necessary information about security measures.”
The US Embassy also issued a press release on Wednesday evening.
The statement said: “On December 1, 2016, a terrorist attack took place in Mumbai, India, killing 166 people and injuring more than 500 others.
The attack occurred in the Indian city of Mumbai, the city of the country’s second largest city and the capital of India.
As a precaution, the Indian Embassy in the United States has issued a travel warning, as part of its security measures, for India and other countries in the region, which include the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Tunisia, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Burkina Faso, Mali-Maghreb, Niger, Burkino Faso-Somalia, Chad, Central African Republic, Chad-Oman, Mali and the Republic of Congo.
The American Embassy said the travel warning is meant to provide an informational and situational awareness to all U.S. citizens and visitors to India.
The Embassy also noted that the Indian security authorities have been closely monitoring international travel for the past three months and have notified a number of measures to safeguard India’s international relations and the interests of India’s citizens.
