Governments advise against travel to Egypt

Travel Tips, What's New — By Pharaonick on January 31, 2011 at 9:02 pm

Given the uprising in Egypt, it’s not surprising that governments are issuing warnings to their citizens to avoid non-essential travel to the country.

Here is the current advice from the US State Department, from the UK Foreign Office, and from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Many governments are also arranging flights to evacuate their citizens from the country.

At present, the situation is volatile and subject to sudden change. It seems unlikely travel to Egypt will be recommended for at least the next few weeks, and most likely longer.
