On 11 August 2017, an express train traveling between Cairo and Alexandria collided with a passenger train traveling between Port Said and Alexandria. The collision has resulted in significant loss of life and injury. While train travel between Cairo and Alexandria is generally considered safe, you may wish to reconsider your method of travel between the two cities and follow local authorities’ instructions (See Local travel). The level of our advice has not changed. Reconsider your need to travel to Egypt overall. Higher levels apply in some areas.
