The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has updated it’s travel advice on 21 November 2013, removing the advice against travel to Cairo and the Pyramids at Giza. This means that there are no travel restrictions in place for the main tourist areas of Cairo, Luxor and the Red Sea resorts. This is updated following previous advice issued on 8 November 2013 (below)
8 November 2013
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has changed its travel advice for Egypt. It has lifted travel restrictions that were previously in place for a number of areas, including Luxor.
The FCO still advises against travel to some areas (for full details please see FCO travel advice), including Cairo. Holidaymakers with trips booked to Cairo or areas that the Foreign Office advises against travel to should contact their tour operator or travel agent.
We would encourage all travellers to Egypt to follow the FCO travel advice and any advice issued by their travel provider or local authorities when in resort.
