Pakistan Travel Warning
United States Department of State
Bureau of Consular Affairs
Washington, DC 20520

December 13, 2001

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens to evaluate carefully the
implications for their security and safety before deciding to travel to
Pakistan.

In neighboring Afghanistan, U.S. forces are engaged in military action
against the remnants of the former Taliban regime and the terrorist al-Qaida
network, including international terrorist Usama bin Laden.

While the Government of Pakistan has expressed its full support for the
international campaign against terrorism, some public sympathy and support
for the former Taliban regime, as well as for bin Laden, still exist in
Pakistan, and the presence of indigenous sectarian and militant groups in
Pakistan requires that all Americans in or traveling through Pakistan take
appropriate steps to maintain their security awareness. Events in the
Middle East also increase the possibility of violence.

The Department authorized the departure of all U.S. Embassy and Consulate
personnel in non-emergency positions and family members at our missions in
Pakistan on September 17. In addition, on September 25, all American
employees at the U.S. Consulate in Lahore departed Lahore. While emergency
American citizens services will be provided to the extent possible by
remaining Consulate Lahore foreign national staff, requests for
non-emergency American citizens services should be directed to the U.S.
Embassy in Islamabad. Further, the U.S. Consulate in Peshawar has
temporarily located some U.S. employees to Islamabad in light of rising
tensions in Peshawar. U.S. citizens considering travel in the region are
advised to be mindful of the reduced staffing levels of the
U.S. Mission in Pakistan and the resultant decrease in its ability to
provide services.

All American citizens in Pakistan are urged to consider their personal
security situations and to take those measures they deem appropriate to
ensure their well being, including consideration of departure from the
country. Consulates in Peshawar, Lahore and Karachi and the U.S. Embassy in
Islamabad remain available for emergency services to American citizens on a
limited basis. However, from time to time, the missions in Pakistan have
and will continue to temporarily close or suspend public services as
necessary to review their security posture and ensure its adequacy.

The U.S. Embassy also urges all American citizens to defer travel to the
tribal areas of Pakistan's Northwest Frontier Province until further notice.
The Government of Pakistan requires all citizens of countries other than
Pakistan and Afghanistan to obtain permission from the Home and Tribal
Affairs Department prior to visiting these tribal areas which lie outside
the normal jurisdiction of the Government of Pakistan.

U.S. citizens in Pakistan are strongly urged to register and obtain updated
security information at the American Embassy in Islamabad, the U.S.
Consulate General in Karachi, the U.S. Consulate in Lahore, or the Consulate
in Peshawar at the following addresses:

The U.S. Embassy in Islamabad is located at Diplomatic Enclave, Ramna 5,
telephone (92-51) 2080-0000; consular section telephone (92-51) 2080-2700,
fax (92-51) 822-632.

The U.S. Consulate General in Karachi is located at 8 Abdullah Haroon Road,
telephone (92-21) 568-5170 (after hours: 92-21-568-1606), fax (92-21)
568-0496.

The U.S. Consulate in Lahore is located on 50-Empress Road near Shimla Road
or Sharah-E-Abdul Hamid Bin Badees, (Old Empress Road), telephone (92-42)
636-5530 during regular working hours,
fax (92-42) 636-5177.

The U.S. Consulate in Peshawar is located at 11 Hospital Road, Cantonment,
Peshawar, telephone (92-91) 279-801 through 803, fax (92-91) 276-712.

For further general information regarding travel to Pakistan, U.S. citizens
should consult the Department of State's Consular Information Sheet for
Pakistan, available via the Internet at
http: travel.state.gov.

This supersedes the Travel Warning for Pakistan dated September 25, 2001, to
update the security situation in Pakistan.
