Portugal is the First European Country to Term Pakistan Safe for Traveling

The law and order situation in Pakistan has improved significantly over time. Recently, the Portuguese government has acknowledged the fact by allowing its citizens to tour Pakistan.

The Portuguese government has issued a new advisory for its citizens, which states that the security situation in Pakistan has improved drastically because of the strenuous joint efforts of Pakistan Army and law enforcement agencies.

This allows the Portuguese people to approach Pakistan’s business market and visit several tourist locations like Hunza, Gilgit Baltistan, and other areas.

Not only this but the Pakistani embassy has designated a counter for Portuguese tourists and businessmen as per the directives of the Pakistani government.

Buddha Becomes a Global Attraction

Meanwhile, Peshawar Museum has lent a 2000-year-old Buddha sculpture to Switzerland for an exhibition in Zurich. The Swiss embassy in Pakistan has recorded the journey of the ancient and rare statue titled ‘Buddha Shakyamuni’ that moved from Peshawar Museum to Rietberg Museum.

Buddha to Switzerland


1.75 Million Tourists Visited Pakistan in 2017

According to Assistant curator and in charge of Peshawar Museum Asif Raza, “this Buddha was excavated in 1909 from Sahri Bahlol. It is from the first century AD, nearly 2000 years old.”

On this occasion, Deputy Head of Cooperation at Embassy of Switzerland in Pakistan, Daniel Valenghi said, “The IMF team also stated that ‘the reversal of policies on many fronts is the main cause of existing quagmire which Pakistan’s economy is witnessing currently,’ and now ‘Pakistan will have to undertake a comprehensive package.’”

“It definitely strengthens the ties between Pakistan and Switzerland in a completely unconventional way I would say. And to also show that Pakistan has a very diverse cultural heritage,” he said.

“I want to thank Pakistan that they loaned this Buddha out of their country to Switzerland,” said the Swiss official.

Other countries have also shown interest in seeing the Buddha statue from Pakistan. This goes on to show the importance of religious tourism as well.

    Really, Pakistan Northern Areas (Specially) Are Safest Areas

  • From someone who translated Portugal’s advisory. Propakistani posts nonsense.

    “Safety conditions The safety conditions are very poor. All travelers are advised to travel to Pakistan to carefully arrange their travel in order to ensure their safety on all journeys within the country. Areas of greatest risk:

    no trips to conflict zones are advisable: tribal areas including Khyber Pass, Swat >Valley, Azad Kashmir and Balochistan inland;

    any unnecessary trips outside the perimeter of Islamabad are discouraged;

    In the urban area of ​​Islamabad the movements should be restricted to the essential and an attitude of vigilance and permanent precaution is recommended. In relation to the rest of the country, it is advisable to advise the local authorities in advance of any travel restrictions or traffic restrictions on the roads. Even in major cities like Lahore, Rawalpindi or Karachi, there is a serious risk of terrorist or sectarian occurrences. In general, it is advisable not to travel at night, avoiding crowds and political or religious demonstrations. Any night-time outings and solitary visits to parks, belvederes and mountains surrounding the capital and the nearby city of Rawalpindi are risky. It is advisable to arrive at the airport in the city of Karachi during the day. It is important, upon arrival, to collect information on restrictions imposed by local authorities on land travel to certain parts of the territory. Mosques should be avoided during periods of prayer, especially on the afternoon of Friday. The Portuguese who are required to travel to Pakistan should contact the Consular >Emergency Office (+351 21 7929714 / + 351 961 706 472). The cities of Peshawar, Quetta and the mountainous area of ​​Indu Kush are located in seismic zone.

    Basically the start of the page said “Safety situation has improved greatly because of armed forces compared to previous years”, which is what ProPakistani mentioned, but they failed to mention that directly after that, it says, “however, this does not mean that a terrorist attack can’t happen or can’t increase at any time in Pakistan”. If Portugal issues any kind of travel advisories, there is simply no way it’s been removed for Pakistan
