Information for Travelers
The American Citizen Services (ACS) section of the U.S. Consulate, Lahore provides information and assistance to U.S. citizens residing or visiting Lahore Consular District (PDF 53.5KB). While we strive to answer many of your questions on this site, much more information can be found at http://travel.state.gov/, the official Department of State's website for information regarding travel abroad and visas.
The U.S. Consulate attempts to disseminate information to the American community in its consular district whenever there is a credible and specific threat to American citizens or American interests. We also provide guidance of a general nature to assist American citizens living in Pakistan make prudent personal security choices. We do not, however, attempt to provide specific day-to-day updates on demonstration activity, traffic, or other disruptions in Lahore consular district.
There are frequent demonstrations in the city. Because of short advance notice from local authorities, information regarding various gatherings is often obsolete before it can even be posted on our website. Americans are encouraged to stay on the lookout and to avoid large gatherings, as demonstrations often take on an anti-American or anti-Western character.
