Brief summary:
Når du rejser til Indien, bør du til enhver tid være opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed. De fleste danskere har dog ingen problemer under besøg i Indien. Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til delstaterne Manipur og Tripura. Der er risiko for røveri, kidnapning, terror og voldelige uroligheder. Risiciene er så alvorlige, at du bør have helt særlige grunde til at rejse dertil. På grund af en meget høj sikkerhedsrisiko fraråder vi alle rejser til:  Unionsterritoriet Jammu & Kashmir. Der er risiko for væbnede sammenstød mellem islamistiske og andre militante grupper, terror, voldelige uroligheder og kidnapning. Grænseområderne til Pakistan undtagen Wagah-grænseovergangen og byerne Amritsar og Jaisalmer. Der er risiko for væbnede sammenstød på tværs af grænsen, terror og voldelige uroligheder. Der er landminer i området. Hvis du vælger at rejse til disse områder, bør du på forhånd søge professionel rådgivning. Ambassaden har meget begrænsede muligheder for at hjælpe dig, hvis du kommer i en nødsituation i de områder, der er nævnt ovenfor.
