Travel Advice for India and Pakistan
The Department of Foreign Affairs has reviewed its travel advice for India and Pakistan.
There have been some moves to ease tensions between India and Pakistan. However, there remains a risk of conflict.
In light of this, Irish citizens in India are no longer advised to consider leaving the country. However, they should exercise the highest levels of vigilance and caution and be prepared to leave at very short notice if the situation should deteriorate. Irish citizens choosing to remain in India should ensure that they are registered with the Embassy.
The Department continues to advises against all non-essential travel to India and advises against ALL travel to northern border regions of the country.
The Department will continue to monitor the situation closely and citizens should be aware that this travel advice may be subject to change at short notice.
