COVID GUIDELINES DUE TO COVID GUIDELINES EGYPT REQUIRES A NEGATIVE PCR COVID TEST TO ENTER EGYPT

TESTING BEFORE ARRIVAL 

As a safety measure, all overseas visitors traveling to Egypt during the pandemic must present a printed negative PCR test certificate on arrival. The test must be based on a nasal or oral swab and the certificate issued by an approved laboratory. Certificates are accepted in Arabic or English.

The coronavirus test medical certificate has to be issued no more than 72 hours before the flight to Egypt.

However, when arriving from Japan, China, Thailand, South America, North America, Canada, London, Frankfurt and Paris, the test and certificate extends to 96 hours.

PUBLIC HEALTH CARD

Travelers must also present a completed Public Health Card on arrival in Egypt. Countries worldwide are introducing this kind of entry requirement to prevent the virus from spreading.

Passengers should provide flight information and contact details. The authorities will notify them if someone they traveled with later tests positive for COVID-19, in which case they would have to self-isolate.

COVID PROCEDURES IN PLACE:  

Temperature checks are in place at airports in Egypt. Travelers are required to wear a face mask at all times in the airport terminal.

Passengers are also asked to maintain a safe distance between themselves and others, especially when boarding and disembarking the aircraft.

The airport has set up hand sanitizing stations. Visitors should wash their hands or make use of the alcohol-based hand gel at regular intervals.

At the airport passengers arriving from overseas will be asked to present the medical certificate, public health card, and proof of valid health insurance.
