A terrorist attack and subsequent bomb blast in the Indian Parliament building on 13 December resulted in several deaths. Strict security measures are in place in the immediate vicinity and around other key government installations. Police check points have been set up in and around Delhi. British nationals should remain vigilant and avoid the Parliament area for the time being. British nationals already in India may contact the 24-hour switchboard at the British High Commission in New Delhi if they have any further concerns.
Most parts of India are trouble-free. However, we strongly advise against travel to all parts of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, apart from Ladakh, where visitors should exercise caution.
Cricket fans travelling to watch the English cricket team should also consult the British High Commission website in India at www.ukinindia.com which contains a special cricket page covering key travel advice and consular information on match locations.
Visitors should not become involved with drugs of any kind.
