Advice from Friendly Planet

COVID-19 Entry Requirements: Digital proof (QR Code) of COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, the vaccine cards issued by the CDC do not have a QR code. Egypt Air recommends the VaxYes platform in order to digitalize and obtain a QR code for your COVID vaccine cards. You can get your QR Code at this website. Step-by-step instructions will be sent with your final documents closer to your departure date.

General Requirements & Guidelines

Advice from Friendly Planet

  • In general, you must have a passport to travel abroad, which should be valid for at least six months after your return date. Passports expiring before then should be renewed as soon as possible. Passports contain at least 2 blank pages for each country visited. If your passport does not have this many pages, obtain a new passport as soon as possible.
  • if your passport and visa are not in order, airlines and cruise ships may deny boarding, countries may deny entry, and your trip may be disrupted. Travel insurance may not cover such losses.
  • Any changes in names or passport information should be reported to us immediately. Airlines and cruise ships may deny boarding if the name on your passport does not match your tickets.
  • Minors (age 17 or younger) departing and/or returning to the U.S. without parents or with only one parent may be required by U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) to present a notarized parental consent letter and/or unabridged birth certificate (more information). Many other countries have similar entry requirements, especially for minors traveling with a parent/guardian with a different surname; check with the consulates of all countries you'll be visiting to learn more.
