Unlocking the world
Editor’s Note — Coronavirus cases are in flux across the globe. Health officials caution that staying home is the best way to stem transmission until you’re fully vaccinated. Below is information on what to know if you still plan to travel, last updated on November 8.
Egypt allowed the resumption of international flights last July, although all passengers must show proof of a negative test taken prior to departure (other than to three specified coastal resorts), as well as valid health insurance.
Egypt is full of big hitters: the Pyramids at Giza, sensational museums and cafe culture in Cairo, not to mention some of the finest diving in the world in the Red Sea. Explore the desert through some of North Africa’s best hiking trails or take it easy at five star resorts complete with private beaches that slide gently into azure water. Cairo’s long-awaited Grand Egyptian Museum is scheduled for opening in 2021.
All travelers can enter Egypt providing they can show proof of a negative Covid-19 test.
