Germany relaxes travel restrictions to Egypt

The German unit of Europe's largest tour operator, TUI Travel, is restarting holidays to Egypt with immediate effect after the German foreign ministry relaxed its travel advice for the country, Reuters has reported. The German government updated its advice yesterday, no longer saying tourists should stay away entirely from Egypt, but that they should exercise particular caution, including when travelling to Red Sea resorts. "Our Egyptian partners are pleased that German holiday makers can return to Egypt, especially now that the important winter season is beginning," said the head of TUI Germany, Christian Clemens.
