The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine urges Ukrainians to reconsider plans to visit Egypt in the next three months. It is reported by the Department of consular service of the foreign Ministry.
APR 10, in Egypt, it was introduced for a three-month state of emergency.

- it is strongly recommended not to travel and stay in the North and in the Central part of the Sinai Peninsula and the desert regions to the West of the valley of the river Nile;
- be vigilant when visiting the North coast of Egypt, the country’s capital and the Delta of the river Nile, tourist places in its valley, on the red sea coast (resorts of Hurghada, El Gouna, Safaga, Makadi Bay and Soma Bay) and the southern part of the Sinai Peninsula (the resort cities of Sharm El-Sheikh, Dahab, Taba).
If staying in the resort areas of Egypt deserve special attention and caution, to refrain from travel outside of the facilities for organized recreation, which are under the protection and supervision of the security forces.
