Under the State Department's new, four-tier travel advisory system, Los Cabos is now listed as Level 2 - Exercise Increased Caution.

Reconsider Travel (orange): This advisory level designates areas where there are significant safety and security risk.

The new ranking is likely to be a boost to country's tourism sector, which has in the past been affected by America's warning on its nationals against travel to Kenya.

The United States Administration of President Donald Trump has warned its citizens to exercise maximum caution while traveling to India due to a spurt in crime and terrorism.

"During an emergency, the U.S. government may be limited in their ability to provide assistance", the Department of State wrote, adding that it advises USA citizens not to travel to such countries or to leave as soon as it is safe to do so.

Over ten countries have been designated level 4 countries, including Afghanistan, Somalia, Iran, Syria, and North Korea. Americans were advised not to travel to Tamaulipas, Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan, and Guerrero.

The advisory informed it's citizens that rape was the fastest growing crime in India.

Now every country has a travel advisory based on this system, which has replaced all the previous such advisories.

The advisory further states that travel by U.S. government personnel within Pakistan is restricted, and additional restrictions on movements by USA government personnel outside of U.S. diplomatic facilities may be put in place at any time, depending on local circumstances and security conditions. Read the country's Travel Advisory for details. They also want travelers to understand that government assistance in level 4 areas may not be readily available.

US travelers were also warned to avoid unnecessary trips to the Central American nation of Guatemala due to the high criminal violence, sexual assault, armed robbery and gang-related offenses.

The Department's newly-redesigned hub for traveler information, travel.state.gov, will host all Travel Advisories, recent Alerts issued for each country, and an interactive map in mobile-friendly formats. A State Department official told Travel Agent that all existing information has been converted to the new products under the new travel warning system. Most of Europe is rated a two, including France, Germany, Denmark, Italy, the U.K., Belgium, and Spain.

United States citizens are advised not to travel to the eastern DRC and Kasai provinces under the new system, which sometimes has separate, higher tier rankings for particular regions within a country.

Countries ranked at Level Three include Cuba, Dominica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Lebanon, Sudan, Nigeria, Turkey, Pakistan, Russia and Venezuela.
