While domestic travellers have already been allowed to move around starting this month, visitors from other countries will be allowed entry into Egypt from July 1, with some conditions in place. While they will be able to stay at resorts along the coast of the Red Sea and the Mediterranean and visit cultural highlights such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian Museum on Tahrir Square, the Karnak temple complex and Abu Simbel, some parts of the country will be off-limits. Hotels will have to be certified by the government on safety and hygiene before they can start welcoming guests, and will operate at 50% capacity. On the plus side, those who travel to Egypt via EgyptAir or Air Cairo will get 20% discounts on tickets to museums and archaeological sites. Tourist visa fees will also be reduced, and travellers can expect a hefty discount on entry to various attractions.
