Due to the current political instability the Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises against travel to the state of Jammu and Kashmir unless absolutely necessary.
Please note that for travel to Assam and the other northeastern states a special permit from the Indian authorities is required.
While in India travellers should be vigilant, avoid crowds and religious or political manifestations.
Travellers are advised to purchase travel insurance, follow media news carefully and, if they so wish, give contact information and inform of travel plans to the honorary consulates in Mumbai (Bombay), Kolkata (Calcutta) and Chennai (Madras).
The Embassy continuously monitors developments in the country and revises its travel advice whenever justified.
