Smartraveller Advice
27 November 2014

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.

Smartraveller Advice
27 November 2014

This Advice was last issued on Thursday, 27 November 2014. This advice contains new information in the Summary and under Safety and security (following June elections, Libya has been unable to establish a functional government). Australians in Libya should depart immediately if it is safe to do so. Commercial departure options are still available. We continue to strongly advise Australians not to travel to Libya due to the high threat of terrorist attack, the ongoing threat of kidnapping and the unpredictable security situation throughout the country.
