Tourists arriving directly at airports in the coastal governorates of the Red Sea (Hurghada), South Sinai (Sharm El Sheikh), and Marsa Matrouh that are unable to present acceptable evidence of a negative PCR test will need to undergo testing on arrival for a fee of USD30. After testing you will be required to self-isolate at your hotel until you receive your test result. The Egyptian authorities will be in contact and will advise whether you need to continue self-isolating. Test results are expected to become available within 12-24 hours. If your test result is positive you may be required to self-isolate for up to 14 days in a separate room allocated for quarantine within your hotel. If necessary, you may be transferred to a public hospital. You may also choose to go to a private hospital, under the supervision of the Ministry of Health.
