Further to our advisory dated 26th July 2021, all Indians travelling to Egypt are advised to note the following:

2. Indian passengers/transit passengers are advised about possibility of considerable delays in COVID testing at the Cairo International Airport, due to an unexpected rush. Indian students should verify and check that they possess all necessary documents, including a recent reference letter from their educational institutions to avoid delays.

3. Please note that ‘as per the new guidelines, an amount of Egyptian Pound 1000 (US $ 64 approx.) will be charged by the Cairo Airport Authority for the ID NOW (a Covid-19 test).'
