Glass bottom boat and visas

Hi

I know I'll need a visa as I intend to dive next week but my wife and kids are going on a glass bottom boat. I don't think they need a visa, am I right?

Thanks

Hi Karen. Should I cancel holiday ? Due to travel to sharm (red sea/coral resort) today fco have changed alerts/advice from green to amber which means the advice against all but essential travel. Don't know what to do. Responsible for my 2 little boys safety. :(

Hi

Advice to Sharm has not been changed today and is still shaded green and deemed safe to go.

The change in advice is on the side near the borders with Libya

There is no reason to change your holiday, travel agents will charge for doing so because advice is still ok to go and green on the FCO website/map
