With Egypt’s borders now open to travellers, a Prime Minister decree has set the conditions for entry into Egypt by air, sea, or land. The decree obligates visitors to present upon arrival a certificate of negative PCR test result dated not earlier than within 72 hours of the person’s arrival.
Excluded from this condition are tourists who arrive on charter flights to the airports of Sharm al-Sheikh, Taba, Hurghada, and Marsa Alam on the Red Sea, also to Marsa Matrouh on the Mediterranean. However, these visitors are banned from leaving their destinations to anywhere else in Egypt unless they have a PCR-negative certificate issued no more than 72 hours prior to their entry into Egypt.
The decree goes into effect 15 August 2020.
