CNN Travel names Egypt as one world destination to visit during Covid pandemic



CNN Travel has launched an initiative to inform travelers about world destinations they could visit during the time of the coronavirus pandemic – one such destination is Egypt!

“Unlocking the World” informed passengers about what they need to know before taking the flight to Egypt, especially advice about precautionary measures imposed by the Egyptian government.

All passengers must show proof of a negative test taken prior to departure (other than to three specified coastal resorts), as well as valid health insurance, CNN said.

Alternatively, those arriving in the coastal governorates of South Sinai, Red Sea and Marsa Matrouh who cannot show evidence of a negative test are able to take a test and then isolate while awaiting the results, at a cost of $30. Those found to be positive must isolate for 14 days in a dedicated area of their hotel.

The website also pointed to tourist attractions in Egypt. Egypt is full of big hitters: the Pyramids at Giza, sensational museums and cafe culture in Cairo, not to mention some of the finest diving in the world in the Red Sea, it said.

The website also recommended exploring the desert through some of North Africa's best hiking trails or taking it easy at five star resorts complete with private beaches that slide gently into azure water. Cairo's long-awaited Grand Egyptian Museum is scheduled for opening in 2021, CNN Travel added.
