The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Pakistan due to the security environment. Travel by U.S. government personnel within Pakistan is restricted, and additional restrictions on movements by U.S. government personnel outside of U.S. diplomatic facilities may occur at any time, depending on local circumstances and security conditions, which can change suddenly.  The U.S. Consulate General in Peshawar is unable to provide any consular services to U.S. citizens. Due to risks to civil aviation operating within or near Pakistan, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) and/or a Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR). For more information, U.S. citizens should consult the Federal Aviation Administration’s Prohibitions, Restrictions, and Notices.

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Du bør være meget forsigtig, når du rejser i Pakistan. Der er risiko for terrorangreb, kidnapninger og voldelige uroligheder overalt i landet. Risiciene er så alvorlige at du bør have helt særlige grunde til at besøge landet. Flytrafikken i Pakistan kan blive påvirket, hvis situation mellem Pakistan og Indien igen bliver mere anspændt. Skal du rejse til, fra eller i Pakistan, bør du kontakte dit flyselskab. Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til Islamabad Capital Territory og provinserne Punjab, Sindh og Gilgit-Baltistan. På grund af den meget høje sikkerhedsrisiko fraråder vi alle rejser i provinserne Baluchistan og Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), herunder alle rejser i pakistansk kontrolleret Kashmir og i stammeområderne mod grænsen til Afghanistan. Det samme gælder al færdsel ad Karakoram landevejen fra Islamabad til Gilgit-Baltistan. Risiko for terror Der er høj risiko for terrorangreb i Pakistan. Der har været en række alvorlige terrorangreb i de seneste år. De har især været rettet mod ikke-vestlige mål, ikke mindst imod politi og militær, men også mod fx skoler og religiøse steder. Terrorangrebene finder især sted i Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), herunder i stammeområderne mod grænsen til Afghanistan og i Baluchistan. Ifølge myndighederne har de afværget et antal planlagte terrorangreb. Ved turistattraktioner har myndighederne gjort en særlig indsats for at øge sikkerheden. Angreb vil kunne ske uden varsel mod sikkerhedsmyndigheder, religiøse samlingssteder og på steder, der bliver besøgt af vesterlændinge. Vestlige mål, især med amerikanske interesser, er udsat for en øget risiko. Du bør være forsigtig på steder, hvor der er mange mennesker. Det kan fx være ved offentlige bygninger, turistattraktioner, indkøbscentre, markeder, trafikknudepunkter, hoteller, restauranter og caféer.
