United States citizens are advised not to travel to the eastern DRC and Kasai provinces under the new system, which sometimes has separate, higher tier rankings for particular regions within a country.
Michelle Bernier-Toth, head of Overseas Citizens Services, said the changes were made because so few people understood the distinctions in the previous, broad rankings.
Under the new system, every country will have its own Travel Advisory, providing levels of advice ranking from 1 to 4.
Among other countries which are ranked at Level One like Malaysia include Brunei, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea, Kazakhstan, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
U.S. citizens should, however, "reconsider travel to the Rwanda-Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) border due to armed conflict", the advisory states.

The U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory on January 10 putting India at Level 2 i.e. exercise increased caution.
Meanwhile, Russia and Turkey are at Level 3.
For countries deemed level 2 and above, the risks and threats of traveling there are further specified. Travelers already in those countries are advised to leave as soon as it is safe. Level 1 advises travellers to exercise normal precaution, while Level 4, which has countries like Afghanistan, recommends "Do Not Travel".
Women have been discouraged from traveling alone as rape is "one of the fastest growing crimes in India".
It is also suggested that United States citizens "reconsider travel to Nairobi neighbourhood of Eastleigh at all times and Old Town in Mombasa at night due to crime".
Several European countries that are popular with American tourists were put at the Tier 2 level due to risks related to terrorism.
In some countries, US embassy personnel are restricted from visiting particular states or provinces where the risks are considered higher. Bernier-Toth said US embassies were given the new rankings ahead of time so they could notify the governments of the impending change.
