Ordered Departure Declared for Egypt
Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Public Affairs, Office of the Spokesman
On February 1, the Department of State ordered the departure of all non-emergency U.S. Government personnel and their families from Egypt in light of recent events. The Department of State will continue to facilitate the evacuation of U.S. citizens who require assistance. Cairo airport is open and operating, but flights may be disrupted and transport to the airport may be disrupted due to the protests. U.S. citizens in Egypt who require assistance, or those who are concerned that their U.S. citizen loved one in Egypt may require assistance, should contact the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Embassy in Cairo at: EgyptEmergencyUSC@state.gov, or at 1-202-501-4444. Please follow the directions on the Embassy website for all other consular inquiries.
I am on track to be an FSO, so I have these sent to my inbox.
I just thought this would be interesting to post here. I think it's important to realize that although the US media might not be taking this seriously, the US government knows something big is happening.
And to everyone who might be in Egypt now, please stay safe.
