Jet2, easyJet, Tui, British Airways, Ryanair: Rules on visiting Egypt as country moves lists within weeks
Egypt is one destination in the world that has it all.
From beautiful beaches and hot weather to the incredible pyramids which bring in thousands of tourists every year, it’s not hard to see why Brits among other nations love this country.
And just to make the trip that bit better, it is currently one of many countries on the UK’s green list.
That means that Brits have to follow less strict measures if they wish to travel there.
Within a matter of weeks, Egypt went from the red list to the amber list and then to the green after the amber list was scrapped by the Government.
Despite being on the green list, there are still many rules that need to be followed.
Green and amber listed holiday destinations revealed with latest deals
Travel restrictions are set to be eased in the UK following confirmation of Step 4 of the lockdown roadmap.
A number of foreign countries are being added to the Government’s Green list and Amber list, which fully-vaccinated Brits can travel to and from without having to quarantine.
Various holiday companies are now offering huge deals with major savings to be had on breaks away:

One of the strictest pieces of advice from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) is that it continues to advise against all travel to a number of places in the country.
These include the Governorate of North Sinai, the Governorate of South Sinai beyond the Sharm el Sheikh perimeter barrier and the area west of the Nile Valley and Nile Delta regions, excluding the coastal areas between the Nile Delta and Marsa Matruh.
Entering into Egypt also requires a number of restrictions being followed.
Passengers from all countries will be required to complete a health declaration with personal details, and will need to provide confirmation of valid health insurance policy to airport authorities.
There is no longer a requirement to show proof of a negative PCR test on arrival if you are fully jabbed.
However, Brits could be asked to do a test on arrival depending on the Covid situation in the UK and how the Egyptian authorities view it.
PCR tests must be conducted no more than 72 hours prior to flight departure. Whilst passengers arriving from London Heathrow only are permitted to have their PCR test conducted no more than 96 hours prior to flight departure.
British passport holders travelling to Egypt normally need a visa to get in which can be found on the Government website.
It’s worth noting that no matter where you go this year, you will have to follow some sort of measures.Tags:egypt, flight, holiday, redsea, sharm, Tourist, Travel
