Ireland has lifted its travel warning for the city of Sharm El-Sheikh and amended the warning issued for the remaining provinces, the Ministry of Tourism reported Saturday. This comes only a day after the Danish authorities took similar steps regarding its travel advisory for Egypt.
Last week, Germany’s foreign ministry also lifted travel warnings for Sharm El-Sheikh. Ahmed Shoukry, chairman of the International Tourism Sector and the Tourism Activation Authority, said other European countries are considering lifting their warnings as well, in light of Germany’s decision.
Following Germany’s announcement, the Italian foreign ministry stated that it also has lifted the travel warning for Sharm El-Sheikh and amended the warning for rest of the country.
During May, the Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS) said visiting tourists were predominantly from Eastern Europe, followed by Western Europeans.
“Eastern Europe had the largest share of 45.7% in the number of nights, followed by Western Europe 30.6%, and the Middle East 16.5% during the same period,” the agency said.
