Due to record rainfall in Pakistan, the U.S. CDC issued an Alert - Level 2, Practice Enhanced Precautions, regarding flooding in Balochistan and Sindh Provinces.

Therefore, U.S. citizens in the affected areas should defer all non-essential travel until the flooding threat has passed.

If you must travel to these provinces, U.S. citizens should always carry their travel documents or secure them in a safe, waterproof location.

Moreover, visitors to this area should avoid contact with floodwater, as it contains harmful germs that can cause disease.

And the U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Pakistan has issued a warning advising U.S. citizens to monitor local news channels for announcements on road closures, evacuations, and possible landslides.

Check the Embassy's Alerts and Messages webpage for the latest information.

Furthermore, the CDC’s Pakistan destination webpage for travel health recommendations, such as vaccines.

Travel vaccination services are offered in the USA at certified clinics and pharmacies.
