“Some tourists have certificates that do not meet the standards of the Egyptian Ministry of Health, or they have an unreadable QR code, or they are questionable, or they are fake.

Only in this case will an express test be carried out, if it is negative, then the tourist calmly enters the country, ”RIA Novosti quotes Shalyabi as saying.

She also noted that the average cost of rapid tests is lower than PCR tests, since the task of the Egyptian authorities is to simplify the requirements for those arriving in the country.

Earlier, the Israeli authorities canceled a three-day quarantine for those vaccinated with Sputnik V.
