New COVID-19 entry rules for Egypt


Egypt has new COVID-19 entry requirements that all travellers need to follow when entering the country.

Travellers from all countries must have proof of a negative PCR test certificate for COVID-19 performed no more than 48 hours before arriving. The previous rule was 72 hours.

Test results must be presented in paper format only. Digital copies will not be accepted. Results also must be in English or Arabic

Travellers must also present proof of travel insurance that covers COVID-19 for entry.

Travellers arriving in Egypt could undergo additional health screenings.

The new Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is supporting tourism and ready to welcome tourists back, while putting people and their wellbeing first.

Egypt will benefit from expert technical support from UNWTO and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to help guide and accelerate the recovery of tourism in the country. EBRD offers technical support to help introduce new safety and hygiene protocols and so boost confidence and revive demand.
