I am going on holiday to sharm on the 11 July should I be alarmed at what is going on in Cairo at the moment I've looked at the FO page and they don't seem to have changed their opinion in the last 9 months does anybody else have anymore info on what's really going on.john

Hi John. There are a couple of threads on the Sharm forum you may want to look at - they may help. The first one is: tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297555-i9225-k6…

and there's this one: tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297555-i9225-k6…

UK FO update

https:/…egypt

• Still current at:

2 July 2013

• Updated:

2 July 2013

• In view of the continued unrest in Egypt, the FCO recommends against all but essential travel to Egypt except for resorts on the Red Sea in South Sinai and those resorts on the Egyptian mainland in Red Sea governorate.

• British Nationals who are currently not in Egypt:

• In view of the continued unrest in Egypt, the FCO recommends against all but essential travel to Egypt except for resorts on the Red Sea in South Sinai and those resorts on the Egyptian mainland in Red Sea governorate.

• In the governorate of South Sinai the FCO advise against all but essential travel, with the exception of (i) the Red Sea Resorts including those in the entire region of Sharm el Sheikh, Taba, Nuweiba and Dahab; (ii) the St Catherine’s Monastery World Heritage Site; (iii) road travel between the Red Sea resorts; (iv) road travel from the Red Sea resorts to St Catherine’s Monastery approaching from the east; and (v) transfers between the resorts and the airports of Taba and Sharm el Sheikh. See South Sinai and Road travel.

• British Nationals in-country already in Egypt:

• Although we are not recommending immediate departure at the moment, British Nationals already in Egypt in areas where we advise against all but essential travel should consider whether they have a pressing need to remain. While in Egypt they should stay at or close to home or a place of safety (e.g. their hotel), keep a low profile and pay close attention to their personal safety, particularly in the larger cities. They should take particular care to avoid crowds. The situation is changeable and they should continue to watch our travel advice closely.

• We are not advising against the use of Cairo airport as a transit stop providing you do not leave the airport grounds.
