Petition Lift the UK Travel Ban to Sharm el Sheikh
The UK remains one of the only countries in Europe to still have a travel ban to Sharm. This should now be lifted. Egypt has a 'high' terror threat, along with other countries such as Australia, France, Thailand etc. British holiday makers are still able to travel to these countries.
The Egypt officials have done everything the British government has asked of them. They have spent over £20 million on security (hiring British security firms). The British public are still travelling to Sharm el Sheikh by joining connecting flights from Germany, France as well as Cairo . Most European countries have now lifted their travel ban, except for the UK. This ban is damaging the UK and Egypt tourism industry, the government lift the ban to Tunisia after sousse attack, so why not Sharm.
