이집트 여행안전 관련한 정보 공유해 드립니다. 지난 1년동안 관광객을 대상으로 테러가 있어서 아직 테러 위험이 전 이집트 지역에 발효되어 있습니다. 
그리고 성지순례시 시나아 반도를 거쳐서 주로 이스라엘로 가는데 시나이 반도는 특별위험지역으로 되어있습니다. 미 정부관련 직업을 가진분들은 시나이 반도는 여행금지 지역이고, 사고 발생시 미 정부에서도 제한적인 도움밖에 못 준다고 되어있습니다. 혹시라도 이집트 여행이나 선교로 가시는 손님분들은 꼭 참고하시고  꼭 가셔야 하는분들은 여행자 보험이나 몇가지 안전대비를 하고 가실것을 권유해 드립니다~
 

U.S. Elevates Travel Advisory Level for Egypt

U.S. Elevates Travel Advisory Level for Egypt

The U.S. Department of State, along with Canada and the UK, have issued travel advisories for visitors to Egypt. 

The Level 2 advisory, issued on July 2, instructed visitors to “practice enhanced caution” when traveling to Egypt due to reports of civil unrest in the area.

The U.S. State Department cautions travelers about the possibility of terrorist attacks throughout areas in Egypt.

According to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), potential attacks can occur with little or no warning, with terrorists targeting diplomatic facilities, tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, western businesses, restaurants, resorts, and local government facilities.

The Sinai Peninsula remains a particularly dangerous area, with frequent attacks on security forces and civilians. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens anywhere in the Sinai Peninsula, as U.S. government employees are not authorized to travel to these areas (with the exception of the beach resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, and travel to that resort is only permitted by air). 

More than 8 million travelers visited Egypt in 2018, and with summer in full swing, the travel warning could severely impact tourism in the region. 

For anyone who decides to visit Egypt this summer, the U.S. Department of State suggests enrolling in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program to receive alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.
