  1. What other Travel Documents are needed for this trip?

A. Valid Passport

  • If you do not have a passport it is important to apply for one as soon as possible. It often takes four to six weeks to process the paperwork for a passport (and even longer during the peak travel season of March to August). For questions about obtaining or renewing your passport (American citizens) you can click here.

  • If you have a passport, please note it needs to be valid for up to 6 months after your scheduled departure date.

  • It is also important that you have at least one completely blank page (with no stamps or visas) in your passport. This is a requirement for entry into many countries. If your passport is nearly full it might be a good idea to apply for additional pages.

  • *Note: Make several photocopies of your passport. Leave a copy at home with your family and carry a copy with you at all times when you are overseas. If you should lose your passport, having a copy will speed up the process of replacing it.

B. Dropbox Sign Waiver

  • Once you have signed up for the trip, you will be emailed a waiver/license for travel to Egypt with us. Please fill it out as soon as possible.

C. Negative COVID-19 Test

  • Per Discover Corps' Health & Safety Protocol, we require that all travelers provide proof of a negative COVID-19 Test: It can At-Home Antigen Test (24 hours before travel).

  • *Note: Email the negative test results to discover corps,

*Note: We highly recommend always double checking with your airlines for their specific boarding requirements.
