COVID INFO HUB

Ready for an adventure? We’re here to help you travel with confidence. Find up-to-date entry requirements for our destination countries, what to expect when you travel, and a summary of our policies related to Covid.

*Updated August 1, 2022

1. You will need to fill in Jordan’s health declaration form at https://www.gateway2jordan.gov.jo/form/. This is regardless of your vaccination status. We recommend completing this form 5-7 days before your departure flight. Upon check-in to your flight to Jordan, you will need to show the QR code you will obtain after filling in this form. You can show your QR code from your mobile phone – we recommend also printing your QR code to have a backup in case of any issues with your digital copy.

2. Upon check-in, the airline may ask you to show proof of health insurance that would cover treatment for covid. Recent travelers have said just showing their health insurance card was sufficient for this.

*Vaccination status note: The above entry requirements are the same for all travelers, regardless of vaccination status against covid-19.

*As of March 1, 2022, Jordan does not require travelers to have a negative-PCR test result for entry, regardless of vaccination status.

Egypt – Covid-19 Entry Regulations

*Updated August 1, 2022

1. If you are vaccinated against covid-19 and have a vaccination certificate with a QR code from your country’s national health service, you can show this information and do not need a negative covid test result for entry to Egypt. For Americans travelers, see the following note.

*Note for American travelers: US CDC vaccination cards do not contain QR codes and are not currently accepted by Egypt as proof of vaccination. Because of this, we recommend all American travelers get a negative covid test result prior to travel to Egypt. This advice is in line with the US State Department’s recommendations for American travelers, which you can find here.

2. If you are unvaccinated against covid-19, or do not have a vaccination certificate with a QR code, you will need a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to your departure flight, or a rapid antigen test taken no more than 24 hours prior to your departure flight. The negative test result must include a QR code or stamp issued by the lab on the printout, so we recommend asking the lab in advance if they provide this. In Europe and the UK, it is common for labs to include QR codes on test results that are self-paid. In the US, it is not common for state-sponsored testing programs such as through Walgreen’s or CVS to include a QR code with the result, so we recommend using a lab that provides covid tests specifically for travel purposes.

3. Fill in Egypt’s online health declaration form within 48 hours of your flight to Egypt at https://visitegypt.gov.eg/ (alternatively, you can fill in the paper version of this form upon arrival to Egypt). Upon arrival to Egypt, you will need to show the QR code you will obtain after filling in the online form. You can show your QR code from your mobile phone – we recommend also printing your QR code to have a backup in case of any issues with your digital copy.

Tunisia – Covid-19 Entry Regulations

*Updated August 1, 2022

1. If you are vaccinated against covid-19, you will need to show proof of full vaccination. No further regulations are in place for entry to Tunisia for vaccinated travelers.

*Note for Americans: CDC vaccination cards are accepted.

2. Travelers not vaccinated against covid-19 will need to show a negative PCR test result taken within 48 hours of their departure flight (or a rapid, antigen test taken within 24 hours of departure). The negative test must include a QR code on the printout, so we recommend asking the lab in advance if they provide this.

3. Random rapid tests for some flights are being conducted by the Tunisian authorities, so you may be tested upon arrival regardless of vaccination status.

Israel & Palestine – Covid-19 Entry Regulations

*Updated August 1, 2022

1. Show proof of a health insurance policy with coverage for the treatment of COVID-19. If your health insurance policy applies internationally, this information can be shown to cover this requirement. If your coverage does not apply internationally, or you don’t have a clear way to provide information that it does, the most straightforward way to show coverage is to purchase travel insurance with a clause covering COVID-19.
2. Fill out Israel’s entry statement form within 48 hours of your flight to Israel. You’ll receive a confirmation email showing you’ve completed the form. This is your Green Pass that you have permission to board your flight – we recommend printing this so that you have it available in addition to the digital confirmation.

*If your travels include touring at sites in the West Bank, there are no additional covid-related regulations.

*Vaccination status note: The above entry requirements are the same for all travelers, regardless of vaccination status against covid-19.

Further resources: We recommend reviewing the Israeli Ministry of Health official covid hub for travelers here.

What to Expect When you Travel – Masks, Social Distancing, and More

*Updated August 1, 2022

In Egypt and Tunisia, there are official mask mandates for indoor public areas. As in many locations, the level this is enforced varies from place to place.

Jordan and Israel have removed all mask mandates.

Our tours take travelers to sites and activities that are generally not in crowded areas and where social distancing is possible.

All of our destinations have a strong tourism industry, so our guides, drivers, local hosts, and others you will be relating to during your tour (staff at hotels, for example) are vaccinated against covid-19.

Our Policy – Covid-related cancellations and changes

We have a “cancel for credit” policy in case of covid-related travel disruptions. If you contract COVID-19 before you leave for your trip, or if government-imposed travel restrictions related to covid disrupt your plans, you can cancel your trip up until your departure day and we’ll hold your payment as credit for future travel at the date of your choice, less any unrecoverable expenses. Government-imposed restrictions include border closures, lockdowns, do-not-travel warnings and quarantine measures.
