News: Poland Lifts Travel Ban to Egypt's Resorts
Poland has lifted the travel ban to Egypt's resorts, allowing its citizens to visit Sharm al-Sheikh, Hurghada, Gouna, Safaga, and Marsa Alam, as well as embarking on business trips, as stated in the travel newsletter circulated by the Polish embassy in Cairo, state-run MENA reported Wednesday.
Polish nationals were requested to travel to these resorts by plane and warned against "traveling individually and planning trips to dangerous areas in central and northern Sinai."
In February 2014, 15 European countries warned their citizens against traveling to Sharm al-Sheikh after three South Korean tourists were killed in a bomb blast in South Sinai.
Nevertheless, Denmark has modified its travel alert to Egypt and lifted the travel ban on Cairo, Alexandria, and Sharm al-Sheikh in July, according to Egypt's Tourism Ministry.
Tourism and Suez Canal revenues are a main source of foreign currency to Egypt.
Tourist influx to Egypt dropped to 9.5 million tourists in 2013 after it had reached about 14.8 million tourists in 2010.
