The U.S. also issued "exercise increased caution" advisory for its citizens travelling to India.

Women have been discouraged from traveling alone as rape is "one of the fastest growing crimes in India". The Level 4 has been indicated for nations such as Afghanistan, recommending "do not travel". "Incidents of violence by ethnic insurgent groups, including bombings of buses, trains, rail lines, and markets, occur occasionally in the northeast", the India travel advisory reads.

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.

The US Department of State has included Azerbaijan in the list of countries with increased security threat after launching improvements, which will provide USA citizens with clear, timely, and reliable safety and security information worldwide. Now every country has a travel advisory based on this system, which has replaced all the previous such advisories.

Countries have been issuing travel advisories for its citizens time and again, considering the present global scenario. The one exception is North Korea, where the State Department has prohibited citizens from using their USA passports to visit without first obtaining a waiver. Country pages on the site will continue to include all travel information now available, including details about entry/exit requirements, local laws and customs, health conditions, transportation, and other relevant topics.

Burundi is designated a level-three destination.

The travel advisory comes on the heels of suspension of aid to Pakistan as outlined by President Trump in his first tweet of 2018, alleging that Pakistan responded with deceit and lies against the $33b provided to it, a claim Pakistan rejects both in terms of statistics and observation.
