The most recent one is two China, as they placed a level two advisory label on the country, warning Americans not to travel there because they may not be able to return. The Department of State called out their “arbitrary enforcement of local laws as well as special restrictions on dual U.S.-Chinese nationals.” If you’re new to the travel game, you’re probably wondering what’s the difference between the travel advisory levels.
