US: The United States has issued four travel advisories for India this year 2022 and maintained the same low level 2 since March 28 – increased exercise for its citizens planning to travel to the country. The American travel advisories maintained and issued by the Department of State is now broadly bifurcated into four different colour-coded levels from 1 to 4, with one (white) being the safest place to travel and four (red) being the no travel zone recommended for its citizens.
This division was first implemented several years ago. Yellow-coloured Level 2 which advises Americans to exercise increased caution has been the travel advisory for India since March 28 of this year, when the State Department lowered it from Level 3 travel advisory of January 24. In Level 3, the US advises its citizens to reconsider their travel to that particular country.
The travel advisory for India has mostly been Level 2 and a few times Level 3. It was put into Level 4 category at the peak of the COVID-19 crisis in April 2021. The latest three travel advisories issued in 2022—on March 28, July 25, and October 5—are comparable in nature and focus to the ones issued earlier this year given that the situation with the coronavirus in India has almost normalised.
The United States may issue travel advisories depending on a number of variables. The state of the nation, public health issues, law and order, terrorism, relations with that nation and travel season are prominent examples of these. In India’s neighborhood, Afghanistan and Myanmar are placed in the highest Level 4 category, while Pakistan and China have been put in Level 3.
Bhutan is in Level 1, and Bangladesh, Nepal, the Maldives and Sri Lanka are in Level 2, which is where the US advises its people to use normal caution when travelling.
