As of now, Egypt has loosened the restrictions, making it simpler to enter the country now that the pandemic in the nation is under control.

Here are the latest guidelines for PCR test entry requirements in Egypt.

PCR testing requirements in Egypt

The COVID-19 requirements for admission into Egypt, as well as the additional norms and regulations for tourists, have been removed; all that is required of travellers at this time is an Egypt e-Visa.

Furthermore, it is no longer necessary to complete a passenger locator form to show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test to enter Egypt.

What about testing at the airport?

Taking a PCR test on arrival is no longer required for travellers to enter Egypt.


Travellers from around the world are not required to quarantine, but anyone that tests positive for COVID-19 while in Egypt is required to quarantine for 14 days.
