Tourists ordered to take COVID-19 test to travel to Egypt

Egypt began the gradual resumption of scheduled international flights from 1 July following the closure of its airspace in March due to the pandemic.

Effective September 1, Egypt will require all travelers entering the country to present a negative PCR test for Covid-19 due to “an increase in infections in some countries,” Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbuli said, according to Ahram Online.

“We are interested in ensuring the health of those arriving in the country and Egyptians; therefore, we have agreed that any traveler arriving in the country must be tested,” Ahram Online quoted Madbuli as saying in an article published on Wednesday.

Hoteliers started talking about a new crisis. The government of the country heard them: the requirement for PCR testing of foreigners has been preserved. But vacationers arriving on the Red Sea coast through the airports of Hurghada, Marsa Alam, Sharm el-Sheikh and Taba without a certificate, from September 1, can pass the analysis upon arrival.

The decision was reportedly made due to the rise in infections in some countries.

The cost of PCR testing will be $ 30. Children under six are exempt from providing certificates and testing for COVID-19 upon arrival.

It is not yet clear how long the results will be ready and where foreign tourists should be while waiting.
