Egypt digitalizes required COVID-19 declaration form for visiting travelers

Baku, April 11, AZERTAC

To reduce airport traffic and increase efficiency, EgyptAir’s official social media pages announced on Sunday, 10 April that it is digitalizing its system from the previous health declaration form, filled out on paper, to an electronic QR registration form for incoming travelers, according to Egyptian streets.

This announcement comes in tandem with the launch of Visit Egypt, the official website that allows visitors to obtain their QR code in order to travel to Egypt.

Through Visit Egypt’s application form, passengers upload their flight details along with their vaccination certificates. Upon approval of the application by dedicated health authorities, the traveler is assigned their QR code.

According to the website, travelers must register at least two days prior to their flight to ensure no unnecessary waiting time upon arrival.

“It is necessary to obtain the QR Code to enter Egypt and show it to travel airports in order to facilitate the completion of travel procedures for passengers traveling to the Arab Republic of Egypt,” reads the official statement.

“The goal of canceling the paper forms is to make life easier; the world is dealing with these issues digitally; all a passenger needs is to fill the required details on the [Visit Egypt] platform,” said Health Ministry Spokesman Hossam Abdel-Ghaffar.
