Foreign Office and testing advice

06 December 2021

Updated 06 December

The FCDO no longer advises against all but essential travel to Egypt, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

On entry into Egypt you need to show proof of 2 vaccinations with an NHS official certificate,a valid insurance policy and you will also be required to fill out a Health Declaration form.

As of 07 December,a Lateral Flow or PCR test should be taken within the 2 days before travel back to the UK and the result shown at airport check-in. Discover Egypt will facilitate and pay for the Lateral Flow test in all its resorts including on the Nile cruise, with results in 12 - 24 hours. 

When returning to the UK, you must have a prebooked Day2** PCR test. This must be prepurchased through an approved provider and the confirmation number should be stated on the Passenger Locator Form which must be filled in before arrival in the UK.

**Please be aware that you do not have to wait until Day 2 to take this test. We recommend booking it at your arrival airport 1 hour after arrival and hopefully you would have the result by the following day.
