India Travel Warning

Issued by US Department of State

May 27, 2002

This Travel Warning is being issued to warn Americans to defer travel to India. Conditions along India's border with Pakistan and in the state of Jammu & Kashmir have deteriorated. Tensions have risen to serious levels, and the risk of intensified military hostilities between India and Pakistan cannot be ruled out.

The Department of State warns Americans to defer travel to India, particularly all border areas between India and Pakistan including the Indian states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Punjab, and to the state of Jammu & Kashmir. The Indian Government has closed virtually all land and air links with Pakistan, ending travel between the two countries. Military movements continue along both the Line of Control in Kashmir and the border between India and Pakistan. Artillery firing along the Line of Control has caused death and injury in that area. Terrorist groups, some of which are linked to al-Qaida and have previously been implicated in attacks on Americans, are active there as well, and have attacked and killed civilians.

The Department of State urges American citizens who remain in India to consider departing the country. Those who decide to remain there should carefully monitor media reports for current information on developing situations and stay in touch with the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi or the nearest U.S. Consulate General in India. U.S. citizens in India are strongly urged to register and obtain updated security information at the Embassy or the nearest Consulate. Americans may register via the Internet, in person, or by mail or fax.
