⚠️ Travel advice
fiber_manual_record High degree of caution
On 5 August, the Government of India announced constitutional changes that will affect the internal political status of Jammu and Kashmir. A heightened Indian security presence is now in place, with additional restrictive measures applying to public gatherings, and internet and telecommunications services. We now advise Australians not to travel to the cities of Srinagar and Jammu along with other parts of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Our overall level of advice has not changed - ‘exercise a high degree of caution’ in India. Higher levels apply in some parts of the country. Reconsider your need to travel to North-eastern states (Assam (except Guwahati), Nagaland and Manipur) and Chhattisgarh and the border areas of neighbouring states. Do not travel to State of Jammu and Kashmir (except Ladakh region) and India-Pakistan border (except Atari crossing).
