Subject: UA Travel in Egypt

Date: July 3, 2013

Political demonstrations in several major cities of Egypt have become violent, resulting in several deaths. These events prompted the U.S. State Department to issue a new Travel Warning for Egypt on June 28, 2013. The Travel Warning recommends deferral of non-essential travel to Egypt at this time due to “the continuing possibility of political and social unrest.” The complete Travel Warning may be reviewed at the following link:

The UA’s International Travel Safety Oversight Committee (ITSOC) is monitoring conditions in Egypt to evaluate safety conditions and to provide recommendations regarding the advisability of UA travel in the region by faculty, staff, and students. In accordance with the Interim Policy for International Travel Safety and Compliance, University travel to Egypt requires review by ITSOC and approval by the Provost while the Travel Warning remains in effect. If you have plans or are considering University travel to Egypt, please be aware of and abide by the approval requirement before finalizing any travel plans.
