By summer at the latest, Egypt wants to once again attract foreign visitors to its tourist areas along the Red Sea with a special security protocol against the coronavirus.

“We want to create safe corridors in which there will be complete security for tourists,” the Egyptian ambassador in Berlin, Khaled Galal Abdelhamid, told dpa.

The protocol will contemplate a series of measures, from a limitation of the number of passengers in airplanes to compulsory tests on entering and leaving the country.

The initiative will start with the popular tourist destinations of Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh. “We hope we can start this in the summer, but maybe already in April or May.”

The ambassador added that tourism accounts for twelve percent of the country’s gross domestic product.
