Mr Charles said: “Our analysis shows at least 10 countries will be added to the UK Government green list next week” (of which Egypt was one). this follows reports that as many as 77 countries could be given the green light, with government scientists said to be examining the countries before ministers choose on which to move.

Egypt Holidays in 2021; Is it Safe?
Most experts are saying that due to the low levels and sparse populations of most resorts, Egypt is about as safe a holiday destination as you can get.

Egypt Holidays Green List Protocol:
All arrivals must take a pre-departure test three days before returning to the UK as well as a (PCR) test on or before day two of their return. Quarantine does not apply (unless the Covid test returns positive) and there is no requirement for additional tests. Also, take note of the green watchlist: the same rules as green list, however, countries on this list are “at risk of moving from green to amber” at very short notice.

Egypt Holidays Amber List Protocol:
All travellers must take a pre-departure test three days before return as well as a (PCR) test on or before day two of their return. Unvaccinated travellers must also self isolate for 10 days and take a second PCR test on day eight. An optional extra day five test can be taken for the unvaccinated, with a negative result allowing “test out” of quarantine. The day eight PCR test must still be taken regardless of the result of the optional day five PCR test, just to make sure.
