CAIRO – 16 May 2021: Saudi citizens who will travel from the Kingdom to Egypt have to get an entry visa upon their arrival at the Egyptian airports for $25, announced the Saudi embassy in Cairo in a statement.
The new decision came into force as of March 14, 2021, the statement said.
Since mid-August, non-Egyptians arriving at Cairo International Airport have been required to bring the result of their PCR test to be allowed in the country, amid precautionary measures against the coronavirus pandemic.
International flights from and to Egypt were suspended in March but resumed in July, 2020. Throughout that duration, tens of thousands of Egyptians were repatriated by EgyptAir and affiliate airlines.
