Egypt prepares to welcome back tourists

European foreign ministries begin to ease travel advisories

Luxor, the centre for cruise holidays on the River Nile, and the Red Sea resorts preparing to host a wave of tourists now that countries in Europe are lifting the travel advisories put in place during the recent unrest in Egypt.
Both the German and British governments have eased their travel warnings for Egypt this week. The foreign ministries of Sweden, Denmark and Norway, meanwhile, lifted their advisories against travel to the Red Sea resorts but kept them in place for other parts of the country.
All foreign ministries warn that the situation across Egypt remains unpredictable, despite a dramatic easing of tensions in recent days.
Egypt’s ruling Supreme Military Council has urged workers’ leaders not to stage further strikes while a new constitution is drawn up over the coming days. A referendum on the new constitution could then take place.
