From Eliat to Sharm-el Sheikh

Is it safe for a Jewish family with American passports to travel from Eliat to Sharm-el Sheikh around September 2013? We need to catch there a plain and bus goes straight from Eliat to the airport in Sharm-el Sheikh.

I would ask aboust safety in Sinai and Sharm al-Sheikh in the Egypt forum. Israel and Eilat are, of course, safe.

I would also look at what kind of alerts the Israeli government now has for travel to Sinai. No one knows what you passport is as you travel.

Travel alerts in Israel are issued by the National Security Council, but unfortunately available only in Hebrew.

There is a warning in level "Very high concrete threat" to the Sinai peninsula: www.nsc.gov.il/NSCWeb/Templates/Country.aspx…

A free translation of the warning description: "The NSC firmly calls to Israelis to refrain from going to Sinai, and to those whom are there - to exit from the region immediately".

Bianca, what do you mean by "do you know the site?"?

If you click on the link in Amos's post and then English in the bottom left-hand corner, you will see it is Office of the Prime Minister, National Security Council. Do you want more authoritative or official than that?
