US Issues 'Do Not Travel' Advisory for 5 Mexican States, Citing 'Crime'

US President Donald

Rwanda is the only East African country given a level-one rating, under which USA citizens are advised to "exercise normal precautions".

The advisory said that Indian authorities report rape is one of the fastest growing crimes in India whereas violent crime, such as sexual assault, has occurred at tourist sites and in other locations.

Level 4 - Do Not Travel: This is the highest advisory level due to greater likelihood of life-threatening risks.

The State Department on Wednesday revamped its travel advisory warning system, installing a new ranking system aimed at making clear how safe or dangerous travel to a specific area may be. "Violent crime, such as sexual assault, has occurred at tourist sites and in other locations", said the travel advisory of the United States government's.

The U.S. State Department launched its new travel advisory system Wednesday, the same day issued a "do not travel" warning to five Mexican states because of crime. She noted that even some of her colleagues had difficulty understanding the difference between "travel alerts" and "travel warnings" under the previous system. "So we've done away with travel warnings and alerts, we've done away with emergency and security messages because, again, that was something people didn't always understand the difference [between], and we have gone to a travel advisory [system] for every country-including Antarctica".

Level 2 in the new system means "Exercise Increased Caution".

Some examples of countries listed at level two at the time of publication include Mexico, due to crime in certain areas, and the United Kingdom, due to elevated risks of terrorism.

On January 10, the Department of State launched improvements to how it shares information with USA travelers.

Several European countries that are popular with American tourists were put at the Tier 2 level due to risks related to terrorism. Meanwhile, No. 3 advisories suggest travelers reconsider trips to designated locations, while No. 4 recommends against travel. In the past, there have been large-scale terrorist attacks resulting in hundreds of casualties.

It advises Americans not to travel to travel to Balochistan province, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province, and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) due to terrorism.

But Cuba is ranked only Level Three, "reconsider travel".
