Clarification for the Record

There have been inaccurate statements in the media characterizing the operating status of the Consulates General of the United States in Lahore and Peshawar.

For clarification, U.S. Consulate General Lahore and U.S. Consulate General Peshawar are open but have a limited operational status, which does not include provision of consular services, as has been the case for some time. U.S. Consulate General Karachi continues to provide full consular services, as does the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad.  The U.S. Department of State routinely issues updates to travel warnings for countries around the world.
