FCO still advising against most travel to Egypt

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is still advising against all but essential travel to Egypt following the ousting of President Mohammed Morsi on Wednesday. Celebrations took place across the country but the UK government is asking Brits who are currently in Egypt to consider whether they should remain in the country.

However, the FCO has not warned against travel to resorts on the Red Sea in South Sinai and hotels on the Egyptian mainland in the Red Sea governorate. Sharm el Sheikh, Taba, Nuweiba and Dahab are all still safe to travel to, according to the latest advice from the Foreign Office.

Many travel agents have cancelled outbound flights from the UK to Egypt until the 6th July. Those travelling on or after the 6th should check with their travel agent before making their way to the airport.

“Holidaymakers currently in, or travelling to in the next few days, areas that the FCO advises against travel to, such as Cairo and Luxor, are advised to contact their travel company,” said the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA.) “Holidaymakers to the Red Sea Resorts, such as Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada, are not affected by the change of advice and will be able to continue their holidays as planned; the resorts are operating as usual.”

“We are monitoring the situation closely and would encourage all travellers to Egypt to follow the FCO travel advice or any advice issued by their travel provider and local authorities,” it added. 

“The situation is clearly dangerous and we call on all sides to show restraint and avoid violence," said Foreign Secretary,Willam Hauge. “We continue to advise British citizens to avoid all non-essential travel to Egypt apart from the Red Sea resorts, and to monitor travel advice from the Foreign Office."
