CAIRO – 19 March 2022: The Egyptian General Authority for Tourism Activation said that the German Robert Koch Institute canceled the list of countries with a high risk of COVID-19, which included Egypt, said the Egyptian Chamber of Tourism Companies in a statement.
The UK Embassy in Egypt announced an update to travel advice for Egypt, saying it no longer advises against traveling to southern South Sinai and Fayoum governorate.
“We no longer advise against all but essential travel to the southern part of South Sinai governorate and Fayoum governorate,” the embassy said in a statement on Thursday.
“This means it’s now easier than ever for the hundreds of thousands of Brits who visit Egypt every year to discover more of this amazing country,” the embassy added.
“With the removal of COVID-19 measures on return to the UK, now is the perfect time to book that holiday,” the embassy said, urging citizens to check the latest Travel Advice and stay in contact with their travel provider in this case.
