The system will include ticketing for the Pyramids, Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, Valley of the Kings, and Sharm El Sheikh Museum.
After Egypt successfully implemented a new e-ticketing system for the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization and the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir earlier this year, it has now incorporated an additional 30 of the most popular archaeological and touristic sites to the reservation system. As part of Egypt’s digital transformation master plan, the new system strives to streamline the reservation process while offering visitors greater accessibility to booking prior to arrival. The system will include ticketing for the Pyramids, Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, Valley of the Kings, and Sharm El Sheikh Museum.
Through this electronic booking system visitors can reserve, pay and receive a digital barcode for entry, circumventing pesky reservation windows and long lines. Visitors can book their tickets through the online booking platform, a mobile app or specialised gates for electronic reservations located at sites and museums. This system is powered by E-Finance and its subsidiary, eAswaaq, which runs specialised ecommerce platforms created specifically for the Ministry of Tourism & Antiquities.
