Canada revises travel advisory for Pakistan

Vancouver East

The Canadian government has revised its travel advisory for Pakistan and removed Islamabad from the list of “avoid non-essential travel” cities.

“It has been observed that there is a decrease in risk level for Canadians to travel to Islamabad,” said a release from Global Affairs Department.

The Pakistani high commissioner had impressed upon the Canadian authorities to revise the advisory for Pakistan as the security situation in the country had improved significantly.

In the first step towards that direction, the Canadian government informed about excluding Islamabad from the “avoid non-essential travel” category and said that further steps will be taken in the light of the evolving security situation.
