The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has announced on Monday that the United Kingdom has eased its travel advisory for British nationals after acknowledging better security situation in Pakistan after almost five years.
In a statement following a “wide-ranging assessment” of Pakistan’s security situation, the FCO said British nationals could now “travel by road to the North of Pakistan as well as the Kalesh and Bamboret Valleys”
“It is great credit to the hard work of the Government of Pakistan in delivering improved security over the past five years.I am delighted that British nationals will be able to see more of what Pakistan has to offer,” the British High Commissioner to Pakistan, Dr Christian Turner said.
The statement also mentioned return of British Airways’ flights to Pakistan back in June 2019, as well as the visit of UK Royals — Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge — to various towns and cities in the country in October 2019.
