Australia upgrades UK travel advice over ‘terrorism threat’

Thursday, Jun 30, 2022 0

Australia has ramped up its travel advisory for the United Kingdom, warning Aussies of the ‘threat of terrorism.’

The  SmartTraveller website advises Aussies to ‘exercise a high degree of caution in the UK’.

It increased the warning level from green to yellow, asking travellers to ‘exercise a high degree of caution’

“International terrorists have staged attacks in the UK,” SmartTraveller says.

“The UK Government’s terrorism threat level is substantial.”

“Islamic extremism, extreme right-wing ideology and the status of Northern Ireland contribute to the threat.”

Australia’s Level 3 orange warning advises Australians to ‘reconsider’ travel, and level 4 (red) warns them not travel to the region.

“At level 2, there are more or higher risks than what you would typically find in a large Australian city,” SmartTraveller advice says.

“This level may also reflect a passing event, such as political unrest or a short-term increase in a location’s domestic terrorism level.”

Other countries at yellow include Greece, France and the US.
