Polish authorities decided to ease warnings against travel to Egypt on Thursday, following a meeting between the Egyptian minister of tourism and the Polish ambassador to Egypt.
According to the Egyptian Tourism Ministry, Polish tourists made up the 6th largest group of visitors to Egypt in 2013. In 2012, official tourism figures suggest that nearly 470,000 Polish tourists were in Egypt, up from only 380,000 in 2011.
Egyptian Minister of Tourism Hesham Zazou headed a delegation to Warsaw on Thursday to participate in the Polish tourism exposition TT WARSAW.
Recent months have seen other countries easing their travel restrictions for nationals traveling to Egypt as well. 22 countries have lifted their travel bans on Egypt this fall.
