Country COVID-19 Testing Requirements

  • Until further notice, it's Discover Corps' Policy that travelers take a COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of departure. Negative test results must be sent to Discover Corps once generated. Please check the Department of State's site for the most up-to- date guidelines. When applicable, local policy or Airline Policies supersede what is in place for Discover Corps.

  • All passengers traveling to Egypt (including Egyptians) must be in possession of a negative PCR test certificate for COVID-19, taken at a maximum of 72 hours before their flight departure time. Passengers traveling from Japan, China, Thailand, North America, South America, Canada, London Heathrow, Paris, and Frankfurt will be allowed to provide the test certificate performed at a maximum of 96 hours prior to flight departure, due to the long travel and transit period from these airports.

    • Travelers must present paper copies of the test results; digital copies will not be accepted.

    • Incoming tourists must show proof of health insurance upon arrival.

Exit Requirements

Effective January 26, 2021, the CDC is implementing that all travelers returning to the U.S., have proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of departing. Discover Corps will arrange for the testing to take place within the required timeframe, the traveler is responsible for the testing fee.
