In an effort to make warnings easier to understand, the State Department has revamped its warnings about the risks of traveling to other countries.

Countries are now labeled:

No. 1 for taking normal precautions

No. 2 for using increased caution

No. 3 urging travelers to reconsider a trip

No. 4 for recommending against travel at that time

Specific threats will be described with summaries such as C for crime, T for terrorism and U for civil unrest.

Reviews are done annually for countries ranked No. 1 or 2, and every six months for No. 3 or 4, with more frequent reviews if events warrent.
