Monitor travel advice updates and the local media for further information.

United Kingdom's Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai due to the significant increase in criminal activity.

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens traveling to or living in Egypt to defer non-essential travel to Egypt at this time due to the continuing possibility of political and social unrest.

The Australian government tells citizens to reconsider their need to travel to Egypt overall due to ongoing civil unrest and not to travel to the Governorate of North Sinai.

Resorts and diving off Sinai is still in the green
The FCO advise against all but essential travel to the Governorate of South Sinai comes with the following exceptions which is of significance to divers:

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.

V. Transfers between the resorts and the airports of Taba and Sharm el Sheikh.
