Foreign Office and testing advice

06 January 2022

Updated 06 January 2022

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.

From 4am on 9 January fully vaccinated customers returning to England do not need to take an antigen (lateral flow) or PCR test before their flight back to the UK. You still need to take an antigen (lateral flow) Day 2 test within two days of arrival back in the UK. This antigen (lateral flow) test can be taken at any time after you land back in the UK but must be within two days of your return.

Customers who have already booked Day 2 PCR tests can still do these and do not need to book additional antigen (lateral flow)tests

**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.
