I just got this email from ADC. I thought it would help any of you that have relatives that are US citizens needing to get out of Egypt.

Community Advisory: Voluntary Evacuation of US Citizens in Egypt

ADC encourages those with relatives in Egypt to convey the information below to such relatives, due to the inaccessibility of internet and e-mail services in Egypt. Washington, DC |

www.adc.org | January 30, 2011 - The U.S. Department of State announced today that arrangements are being made to provide transportation out of Egypt for U.S. Citizens and their immediate relatives, beginning Monday, January 31. This is not a mandatory evacuation. Flights will head to safe haven locations in Europe. Once in Europe travelers will be expected to make their own onward travel plans. Please read the following information thoroughly on how best to assist U.S. Citizens and their immediate relatives looking to leave Egypt. Persons interested in departing Egypt via USG-chartered transportation should contact the U.S. Department of State and Embassy Cairo by sending an email to EgyptEmergencyUSC@state.gov or by calling with the requested information. Due to the inaccessibility of the internet and e-mail in Egypt, representatives of U.S. citizens can also submit the information on behalf of the traveler(s). Information required for all travelers is as follows:
  • Name
  • Age
  • Place of birth
  • Passport Number
  • Description of any medical needs
  • Contact information

Please note that at the time ADC issued this release, the USG-charted flights' specific times for leaving Cairo had not been specified. It is expected that the traveler will be contacted by the State Department with the additional detailed information. Additional information:

  • Immediate family members (spouses and children) who are not U.S. citizens must be documented for entry into the safehaven country and/or U.S., if that is your final destination.
  • Only one (1) piece of luggage per traveler.
  • This assistance will be provided on a reimbursable basis, as required by U.S. law.Additional information regarding travel
