ZIKA VIRUS
All travellers to areas with active Zika virus transmission should practise mosquito bite avoidance measures, both during daytime and night time hours (but especially during mid-morning and late afternoon to dusk, when the mosquito that transmits Zika virus is most active).

Advice published: February 2016
• Pregnant women planning to travel should consider avoiding travel to areas with active Zika transmission. If travel is unavoidable, or they live in areas where active Zika transmission is reported, they should take scrupulous insect bite avoidance measures, both during daytime and night time hours (but especially during mid-morning and late afternoon to dusk, when the mosquito that transmits Zika virus is most active).
• All pregnant women who have recently travelled to a country where active Zika transmission is reported should notify their primary care clinician, obstetrician or midwife.

Sharm el Sheikh FCO advises against all but essential travel by air to or from Sharm el Sheikh Airport. There is a significant possibility that the crash was caused by an explosive device. As a precautionary measure, we are now advising against all but essential travel by air to or from Sharm el Sheikh. UK carriers will not take passengers directly to Sharm el Sheikh Airport. We are working with the Egyptian authorities and air carriers to put special security measures in place which will permit travellers in Sharm el Sheikh to return by air, whether as scheduled at the end of their stay or before that if they wish. British nationals affected by this should contact their tour operators or carriers to arrange an orderly departure. We are not raising the threat level in the resort. The above advice applies only to air travel to and from Sharm el Sheikh. Carriers will not be permitted to fly from Sharm el Sheikh until we are satisfied that it is safe for them to do so.

Canada We have been advised by the Canada Tourism Commission that the regulation for Canada's Electronic Travel Authorisation (eTA) has been confirmed.

The new entry requirement will be mandatory from 15th March 2016, however from 1st August 2015, eligible travellers will have the opportunity to apply online for their eTA
