current U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory at the date of this report’s publication
assesses most of India at Level 2, indicating travelers should
exercise increased caution due to crime and terrorism. Some areas have
increased risk: do not travel to the state of Jammu and Kashmir (except the
eastern Ladakh region and its capital, Leh) due to terrorism and civil
unrest; and do not travel to within ten kilometers of the border with Pakistan
due to the potential for armed conflict. Review OSAC’s report, Understanding the Consular Travel

of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Goa.
U.S. Department of State has assessed Mumbai as being a MEDIUM-threat
location for crime directed at or affecting official U.S.
government. Although it is a city with an estimated
population of more than 25 million people, Mumbai remains
relatively safe for expatriates. Being involved in a traffic
accident remains more probable than being a victim of a crime, provided you
practice good personal security. The Mumbai
Police force lacks training and are overworked, but seem to do a reasonable job
in securing the city. Petty crime or crimes of opportunity have affected
expatriates with reports of stolen bags,
passports, and other valuables. Most of these crimes occur in a
non-confrontational / nonviolent manner. Areas foreigners frequent
are less vulnerable due to a generally adequate police presence. Violent
crimes do occur in Mumbai, but are generally isolated in more high-density
areas such as slums and crowded apartment blocks. While the potential
exists for a foreigner to be a victim of both violent or property
crime, there are no indications that criminals specifically target the expatriate
community. Review OSAC’s reports, All That You Should Leave Behind.
theft is a common occurrence amongst the Indian population, normally
occurring when the property is vacant. Violence resulting in serious injury or
death is relatively rare. Most commonly, residential theft involves household
staff either stealing directly from their employer or allowing acquaintances into
the residence while the employer is away. Review OSAC’s reports, Hotels: The Inns and Outs and Considerations for Hotel Security.

Department of State recommends avoiding travel within ten kilometers of the
India-Pakistan border. Both countries maintain a strong military presence along
the border. The only official India-Pakistan border crossing point for persons
who are not citizens of India or Pakistan is in Punjab between Attari,
India, and Wagah, Pakistan. The border crossing is usually open; confirm the
status prior to travel. A Pakistani visa is required to enter Pakistan. Only
U.S. citizens residing in India may apply for a Pakistani visa in India. The
Pakistani government requires that U.S. citizens resident in India must first
come to the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi to sign an affidavit of intent to apply
for the Pakistani visa before submitting their application. Otherwise, apply for
a Pakistani visa in your country of residence before traveling to
and capability of organizations conducting organized white-collar financial
scams and cybercrime continues to expand. Indian authorities report that West
African/Nigerian fraud rings are active in Mumbai and Goa. Many scams are
perpetrated by email, texts, ruse phone calls, and call centers involving
the promise or guarantee of a U.S. visa in conjunction with employment
overseas. Scammers use similar fake email domains, for example @diplomats.com
or @us-traveldocs.com. Often the scams include past and present names of
U.S. Consulate staff, officers, Ambassadors, and Principal Officers

Gujarat responsible for tricking thousands of U.S. victims into
transferring money for scams, including posing as IRS agents, USCIS
officers, and family members in distress. Most victims were targeted for a few
hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars, usually small enough amounts that
make it not worth the time for foreigners to pursue legally, since doing
so would require them to register a case in Indian courts
in person, or show up for trials that could be years later.

Road Safety and Road Conditions
in Mumbai are in moderate condition, but the city's infrastructure is not
keeping pace with rapid population growth and
development. Traffic congestion throughout the city is significant at
virtually all times, with a corresponding increase in the number of high-speed traffic
accidents and fatalities, particularly on the few
highways. Maharashtra officials report that approximately 72,000 accidents
occur every year in the state, resulting in an average of 14,000
deaths. Mumbai continues to see an increase in auto accidents. Local media
reports that an Indian dies every three minutes in a road accident. In
general, most areas lack basic traffic law enforcement. Many
drivers routinely ignore traffic rules without regard to safety.
by road in India is dangerous; travel at night is particularly
hazardous. Buses, the transport mode of choice for hundreds
of millions of Indians, are convenient in that they service most cities. Unfortunately, bus drivers usually
drive without much of what Western travelers would understand as rules
of the road. Accidents are quite common. Trains, while statistically safer
than buses, also suffer accidents with alarming
regularity; train accidents and fatalities gain increasing media attention
due to the high death tolls when they do occur.
in India moves on the left. It is important to be alert while crossing streets
and intersections, especially after dark, as traffic is coming in the
"wrong" direction (i.e. from the right). Travelers should remember to
use seatbelts in both rear and front seats where available, and to ask their
drivers to maintain a safe speed. At intersections, there are frequently
throngs of indigent individuals and street hawkers. Keep windows rolled up and
have either a valid Indian driver’s license or a valid international driver’s
license. Because of difficult road and traffic conditions, many U.S.
travelers who visit India hire a local driver. On Indian
roads, “might makes right.” For example, many vehicles, including buses
and trucks, run red lights and merge directly into traffic at yield
points and traffic circles. Cars, auto-rickshaws, bicycles, and
pedestrians behave only slightly more cautiously, but are often as or more
aggressive than larger vehicles. Frequent use of the vehicle horn, without
clear indication as the reason for its use, is customary.
major cities, main roads and arteries are often poorly controlled or maintained,
and frequently congested. Even main roads frequently have only two lanes,
with poor visibility and inadequate warning markers. On the few
divided highways, expect to meet local transportation
traveling in the wrong direction, often without lights after
dark. Heavy traffic is the norm and includes (but is not limited to)
overloaded trucks and buses, scooters, pedestrians, bullock and camel
carts, occasional horse or elephant riders en route to weddings or
celebrations, bicycles, and free-roaming livestock.
a driver hits a pedestrian or a stray animal, crowds can form quickly, often
surrounding the vehicles and individuals involved. Bystanders could
attack occupants under circumstances such as this; such attacks
pose significant risk of injury or death to the vehicle's
occupants, or incineration of the vehicle. If it appears to be unsafe
for individuals involved in an accident to remain at the scene, drive directly
to the nearest police station.

dark and especially if not in the company of known, trusted companions.
Traveling alone in hired taxis and rickshaws is generally safe, even as an
increasing numbers make use of application-based transportation providers, with
Uber, Meru, and Ola the most popular. Rickshaws and Taxis
now appear on Uber and Ola.
Suburban Railway carries millions
of passengers each day. Unfortunately, train accidents still occur with
some frequency. Trains are extremely overcrowded throughout the
day; exiting and entering the train can be dangerous, or in some cases
deadly. Many trains frequently operate with the doors open, leaving room
for more adventurous riders to hang out these doors during peak time
hours. On average, there are approximately 3,000 deaths related to the
train system per year, though this includes people riding on the outside or top
of the train, as well as some pedestrians. Petty theft is common; riders
should keep close watch of their belongings. Reports of harassment of
women persist. Women should travel in the female-only
compartment, which will offer a measure of security. However, there have been
reports of criminal gangs targeting women in these cabins.

have a robust police presence, extensive CCTV coverage, and restrictions
limiting airport access to only employees and travelers. An adequate
number of police officers are in proper uniform outside
the arrival hall and parking area at the airport. In addition,
plain-clothed police officers also keep watch on suspicious activity.

disparate number of Maoist extremist groups called “Naxals” or “Naxalites” are
active in parts of the Mumbai Consular District. They are particularly active
in rural parts of the Indian states of Chhattisgarh and extreme eastern
Maharashtra, and in border regions of the adjacent states of Andhra Pradesh,
Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Orissa. The Naxalites have a long history
of conflict with state and national authorities, including frequent attacks on
local police, paramilitary forces, and government officials. The Naxalites
have not specifically targeted U.S. citizens, but have attacked symbolic
targets including Western companies. While Naxalite violence does not normally
occur in places frequented by foreigners, there is a risk that visitors could
become unintended victims. Due to the fluid nature of the Naxalite threat, the
U.S. Consulate General requires all U.S. government travelers to states with
Naxalite activity to receive prior authorization from the Regional Security
from the ongoing Maoist insurgency, there have been no major attacks in
Mumbai’s consular district since 2008, when members of the international
terrorist group Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT) targeted the city, conducting a
complex attack operation that lasted three days, killed 173 people, and
wounded more than 300 others. The attackers stormed and bombed hotels, a Jewish
community center, a train station, a café, and a hospital during the lengthy
attack. Since that time, there have been a number of smaller attacks,
including a series of three coordinated bomb explosions in 2011 at the Opera House, Zaveri Bazaar,

demonstrations professionally when they have advanced notice and can
adequately plan for the event. The city also experiences spontaneous
demonstrations and incidents of violence that can disrupt traffic flow, as well
as causing damage to property before the police can respond. These protests
usually occur with little or no warning. The police are quick to disrupt such
protests, although this may result in violent clashes between police and
protestors, ending in injuries and sometimes death. For more

years after the gang-rape of a young woman in New
Delhi triggered nationwide protests and led to more stringent laws
on sexual assault and rape, the arrival of the global #MeToo movement in India has opened new conversations on sexual
violence. The Narendra Modi government has introduced the
"zero-tolerance" policy towards violence against women, reform of
criminal justice system, and simpler, quicker, and more effective delivery of
justice. More than 32,500 cases of rape were registered with the police in
2017, about 90 per day, according to the most recent government data. Indian
courts disposed of only about 18,300 cases related to rape that year, leaving
more than 127,800 cases pending at the end of 2017. According to statistics
recently released by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB),
Uttar Pradesh recorded the most sexual harassment cases with 5,830; Madhya
Pradesh followed with 2,985 cases; and Maharashtra placed third, reporting
2,910 cases. Telangana recorded more cases of sexual harassment in the
workplace than any other state. Bihar was the state to record the most cases of
sexual harassment on public transport.
women continue to report incidents of harassment by men. Women should
observe stringent security precautions, including: avoiding public transport
after dark without known and trustworthy companions; restricting evening
entertainment to well-known venues; and avoiding being in isolated areas alone.
Female travelers should respect local dress and customs and dress
conservatively. While Mumbai is generally safe for all foreign visitors, and
has a large expatriate community, reported rape numbers continue to increase.
While the vast majority of incidents appear confined to the Indian population, expatriates
and foreigners are not exempt, including within the diplomatic community.

planning to engage in religious proselytizing must have a
"missionary" visa. Immigration authorities have determined that
certain activities, including speaking at religious meetings to which the
general public is invited, may violate immigration law without a missionary
visa. Foreigners with tourist visas who engage in missionary activity are
subject to deportation and possible criminal prosecution. The states of Odisha,
Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Arunachal Pradesh have
legislation that regulates or places restrictions on conversion from one
religious faith to another. Those intending to engage in missionary activity
should seek legal advice to determine whether the activities they intend to
pursue are permitted under Indian law. Review OSAC’s report, Freedom to Practice, and the State Department’s webpage on security for faith-based travelers.

violence is infrequent, but there is a significant amount of drug trafficking
through the Pakistan-India-Myanmar route. Drugs (e.g. cocaine, amphetamines)
are commonly used and are widely available. These drugs frequently appear at
rave parties among those in higher social strata.
2018, India exported over $17 billion
of licit pharmaceutical drugs, and it has been the leading generic
drug manufacturer in the world for several years. Estimates suggest that India
exports twice the volume of pharmaceutical drugs as China. Drug traffickers
exploit this commercial infrastructure – and India’s rare combination of
technical expertise and chemical source supplies – to market dangerous synthetic
drugs in the United States and elsewhere. U.S. and international law
enforcement authorities have voiced concerns that transnational criminal
organizations could target India’s pharmaceutical laboratories and chemists to
produce illicit fentanyl and fentanyl analogues.
customers obtain illegal pharmaceutical drugs from India through online
pharmacies, non-indexed web sites (“Dark Web”), or call centers. Thousands of

pharmaceutical drugs as a major problem.

However, billions of tablets of mostly counterfeit tramadol originating in

law enforcement has raided multiple pharmaceutical factories
illegally producing ketamine, hashish, cocaine, and opium. The drug trafficking
organization involved in these raids was responsible for trafficking illegal
drugs to Australia, Canada, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya,
Malaysia, Mozambique, Nepal, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, the United Kingdom,
and Vietnam, demonstrating India’s role as a central transit point for
international drug trade.
Law Enforcement in conjunction with DEA successfully arrested three individuals
involved in the operation of a fentanyl laboratory including a Mexican cartel
member and a PhD-level chemist. Indian law enforcement officials have made
arrests for trafficking heroin near the Nepal border, with a believed
terrorism nexus. Seizures of MDMA (ecstasy) and ketamine manufactured in India
have also been observed. Indian NCB and DRI work closely and effectively
with DEA and regional counterdrug partners in Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and
the Maldives. Through this regional cooperation, Indian officials are
able to make or facilitate numerous arrests and seizures. Further developing
this relationship through intelligence sharing and cross training could lead to
continued operational improvement.
