US Travel Advisory sees improvement
UK already updated travel advisory
Prime Minister Imran Khan welcomed it. He had posted his comments on twitter account.
He said he will be delighted that British nationals will be able to see more of what Pakistan has to offer.
British High Commissioner to Pakistan Dr Christian Turner in a statement said it is great credit to the hard work of the government of Pakistan in delivering improved security over the past five years.
After a comprehensive review, the UK travel advice for Pakistan changed based on a wide-ranging assessment of the country’s security situation.
This remains the first major update in the travel advice since 2015.
Notably, improved security situation allowed for the return of British Airways to Pakistan in June last year.
Another proof: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also visited Pakistan in October last year.
Among other changes, the advice now allows for travel by road to the North of Pakistan as well as the Kalesh and Bamboret Valleys.
