Tourism in Egypt is down after the uprising of 2011, and there is around 11 million people suffering from losing their business related to tourism. Those who work in tourism tried all possible means with the Egyptian government asking for their business back, but it seems the Egyptian government does not want this kind of business at the is time. The country is suffering from terrorism, and indeed now is not the right time for tourist according to the government view, that is why they pay no attention to tourism at the moment.
The government, however, is securing all tourist attractions and there is tourist police everywhere to protect tourist. And still, many people come and visit Egypt.
