The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has amended their travel advice for Egypt and advises against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai and against all but essential travel to parts of South Sinai.
Their advice states that there ‘is a high threat from terrorism throughout Egypt, including in Sinai’.
Although security is tight in resort areas, ‘there remains a high risk of attacks, which could be indiscriminate, including in public places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers such as hotels and restaurants’.
The Red Sea Resorts including those in the entire region of Sharm el Sheikh, Taba, Nuweiba and Dahab are exempted from this advised travel restriction.
