The US Embassy in Pakistan has issued a travel advisory where it advised citizens to remain vigilant since the nation is gearing up for the national polls on February 8.

"U.S. citizens should remain vigilant and aware of the locations of political rallies occurring in areas they intend to visit," the advisory said.

"On February 8, election day, areas around polling stations may be crowded, and U.S. citizens not eligible to participate in Pakistan’s elections should avoid them," the advisory further said.

The embassy warned disruptions to internet and cellular service could occur leading up to and throughout election day and immediately following. 

The embassy directed its citizens the following actions to take

Avoid areas of large public gatherings.

Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of a large gathering and/or demonstration.

Review your personal security plans.

Monitor local media for updates.

Keep a low profile.

Carry identification and cooperate with police.
