The U.S. Department of State and other world governments strongly warn citizens against travel to Pakistan.

A number of extremist groups within Pakistan continue to target American and other Western interests, high-level Pakistani government officials, as well as members of minority indigenous groups. Bombings and assassinations continue, so western governments now advise their citizens to avoid travel into Pakistan, if at all possible.

In addition, the presence of al-Qaida, Taliban elements and militant sectarian groups pose a potential danger to travelers. Terrorists regularly attack civilian, government and foreign targets.
