image for Travel Advice Relaxed for Egypt

The Foreign Office's previous instructions advising "essential travel only" for Egyptian destinations such as Cairo, Alexandria and Suez, has finally been relaxed.

The warnings has been put in place in the wake of widespread unrest and civil disturbances during the recent demonstrations which ultimately lead to the unseating of the government.

But a Foreign Office spokesman still sounded a note of caution : "We would still advise British travellers to the region to be on guard just in case there are still any pockets of resistance to the massive changes that are occurring in Egyptian life as a result of the popular uprising over the last few weeks.

We would urge British tourists not to wear any "Mubarak for President" t shirts, even if intended to be satirical or ironic. Similarly, I wouldn't encourage any travellers to the Middle East or North Africa to let it be known that they work for defence contractors in the U.K. That would indeed be a potential recipe for disaster.

Moreover, even if these warnings have been heededand you haven't knowingly done anything to incite trouble, if you hear hundreds of footsteps coming up quickly behind you, run like hell."
