UD State Dept refuted a fake travel advisory to Pakistan!


Taking notice of a fake travel warning circulating on social media platforms, the US State Department’s Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs (SCA) clarified that it had not issued any travel advisory for Pakistan in June 2023.

Reacting to the fake advisory, the SCA said: “We’re aware of a fake travel warning circulating.”

It added: “As a reminder, all our alerts and messages to US citizens in Pakistan are posted here [US embassy’s website].”

 

The fake travel warning doing rounds on social media platforms for the past couple of days urged the US and Canadian citizens of Pakistan origin to avoid using the National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP) while traveling to Pakistan.

Was it another PTI supporter’s propaganda?
