Can an Amercian go to Egypt? Is it safe?

Country: Egypt


dear traveler, you are welcome any time to egypt. egypt is one of the safest places on earth. you can walk day or night in the street without any fear at all. many americans visit egypt every year, actually i have many american friends who are living and working in egypt. you can come and visit the country any time of the year. take my word, i, even i myself guarantee your safety and security. welcome to egypt
Hi there! As the American half of the Nile Sunsets team, I can assure you that you will not face any hostility as an American. People everywhere will welcome you. My first few visits the most 'negativity' I got was that people said, 'Welcome to Egypt! We love Americans but hate your politics/president'. No worries there. Most of us aren't fond of him either. :-) But no more! With our president-elect being as popular in Egypt as he is it will be different for you.

In the tourist-centric areas, there are police everywhere for the tourists' protection and Egyptians themselves are friendly and helpful. You will not feel unsafe. I go out in Egypt at any time day or night. Of course life has no guarantees but I think Egypt is just as safe or unsafe as anywhere else and SAFER than many US cities.

You will have an awesome time. Egypt awaits. :-)
Forgot to sign my post. This is KC. :-)

yes it is be safe insha Allah
many Americans women ,English lives here in Egypt and working since many years beside many tourists coming from every where to visit Egypt
Egypt is safe like your country

Hello, and yes for sure Americans are welcome to Egypt.
It is safe for tourists, of course and many many come every year to see the pharonic sites and experience the culture. Governement of Egypt wants very much for the safety of the tourists too, and people here many can speak English well and love to meet people from everywhere. Tourism is a very long history in Egypt.

The Pyramids are just one of many sites you can enjoy, so I do hope that you come to Egypt to enjoy it.
Absolutely safe !, Egyptians are a very welcoming people and they love tourists and all the tourism places are secured very well by the police although no thing happen any way :)

So Come over and I hope you enjoy your stay and I hope your mother like the pyramids :)

well my friend egypt is the safest country among others
plus Americans comes all year and they enjoyed.
just remove this idea and go ahead and bring your brothers
but my advice to you
1-ask about the security procedures your agent preparing for you
2-do not insult anyone to gain thier trust
u are welcome dear to come to egypt
we cant talk about a country that is safe or not , because every country had a terrorist affair most likely to be everywhere
and also there are many americans that live here , and we have never heard that anybody had sth wrong
Just trust in God ,, and then if you go to hell u ll be safe :Dhehe
hi there....i forgot to tell you something that i have been working now as tour guide more than 15 years and most of my guest told me that egypt is more safe than their own dont worry .come and check with ur own eyes.and for sure you will be back again and again
Egypt is one of the safest countries in the world beside that it is awesome and its people are very kind so it is very safe not only for Americans but also for any other person.

Egypt is one of a few places in the world that you can walk in its street 24 hours a day, without even feeling insecure.

But you might be stopped by the locals, for nothing but to shake your hands and offers you help if you need :D

Ur own kid could play in the streets with his friends late till 3 am as example ... and am afraid this is not possible in the states ... so let the fear away get ur mom ur hole family if u liked and come to Egypt u will never regret it ..
I can ask the same question but as a Romanian. Bad people wont ask for your passport first to see what's your citizenship... But I am sure that people from that great and full of hystory and mistery country - Egipt - will welcome you and treat you as an Egiptean King! I see this also from their warm and friendly messages here. One day I will have to travel to Egipt too, so I am preparing my trip starting from here. Until then I'd like to find Egiptean friends coming to Romania! You are very welcomed!
Thanks Teodor for your nice words, I'm really looking forward to meet you whnever you come to Egypt or I come to Romania.
thanks for this nice words and u welcome to Egypt any time
yeah man the Egyptian people like always to welcome thier guests so come to Egypt and u will see the treatment of Its people.
Welcome to Romania, Hatem and anyone else from your country! Just let me know before you come.
All the best to all of you,
