    Advisories

    Egypt - AVOID NON-ESSENTIAL TRAVEL

    Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada advises against non-essential travel to Egypt due to the unpredictable security situation. This advisory does not apply to the Red Sea coastal resorts of Hurghada (and its surroundings) and Sharm el-Sheikh, nor to the area from Luxor to Aswan along the upper Nile, where you should exercise a high degree of caution.

    If you decide to travel to Egypt despite this advisory, plan your trip with a reputable Egyptian travel company or agency, as they are are well informed of the security situation and can better plan accordingly.

    Register with the Registration of Canadians Abroad service. The ability to provide consular services on short notice may be limited.
