According to official government advice, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) says that all British nationals should not travel into Egypt unless it’s essential, due to Covid-19. However, with the right travel insurance you can be sure that you get cover for any situation you may encounter.
Advice from before covid-19 is still in place. The FCO advised against all travel to the Northern Governorate of Sinai due to criminal activity and extremist groups. The FCO also advised against all but essential travel into the Governorate of South Sinai. However there was no advice for the area within the Sharm el Sheikh perimeter, since it has extra security measures. For anyone that is travelling to Egypt the government recommends taking out travel insurance policies which cover for Covid-19 related situations. These may include health situations and cancellations.
Egypt has its own restrictions for anyone entering the country. Egypt is only allowing some international flights into and out of the country. Some airports may have unique restrictions such as compulsory face masks, you must check these with your airline. Upon entering the country passengers will need to have their temperature taken, fill out a health monitoring card, and provide evidence of valid health insurance.
