Discrimination Based on Nationality

A friend of mine received this message from a tourism company

"Dear Mr. Fady,

... Thank you so much for contacting us, we really appreciate it and hope that you are having a wonderful day.

We would love to have you on board the tour, but unfortunately I regret to let you know that due to tourism policy regulations, we can NOT have Egyptian nationals with a foreign group.

Groups coming from overseas are called "inbound tours" and they are NOT to be mixed up with "in country" tours.

I am so sorry sir that we won't be able to serve you on the group. It is really out of our hands as it is a tourism police regulation.

Take care and have a wonderful night"
