With many flavours of COVID-19 vaccines making their way around the world, the travel industry has started to take a more optimistic view for the near future, with countries reopening for tourism and travel bans gradually getting lifted. The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has announced that, considering the recent upwards trend, tourism in Egypt will hit pre-pandemic levels by fall 2022. During the past three months in particular - from December 2019 to February 2021 - Egypt has seen an average of 10,000 tourists a day, or up to 290,000 tourists a month. With the 2021 opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum and other highly anticipated events scheduled throughout Egypt, these numbers are expected to continue their growth into the next year.
