AUSTRALIAN HIGH COMMISSION
The Travel Advisory for Pakistan has been reviewed and reissued on Saturday, 17 September 2016
On 16 September 2016 over 25 people were killed and more than 30 were injured when a bomb detonated in a mosque in Payee Khan, Mohmand Agency district. Australians are advised that terrorist attacks can occur anywhere at any time in Pakistan and should exercise extreme caution. The level of our advice has not changed. We continue to advise travellers not to travel to Payee Khan due to the volatile security environment. We continue to strongly advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel to Pakistan overall. Higher levels apply in some parts of the country.
Further information is in the travel advice for Pakistan and our travel bulletin available at www.smartraveller.gov.au.
