Egypt

This Advice was last issued on Thursday, 27 November 2014. This advice contains updated information in the Summary and under Safety and security (There have been calls for demonstrations across Egypt on Friday 28 November, with some calls for violence. Small explosions, resulting in death and injury, continue to occur on a daily basis in Cairo and other areas of Egypt. Attacks are directed at police, but bystanders have been killed and injured. Attacks occur most commonly around government buildings, in the vicinity of metro stations, on trains and at universities ). We continue to advise against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai. We continue to advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel elsewhere in Egypt due to ongoing political tension and the threat of terrorist attack.
