The Prince of the Sea (Egypt Suez Canal Agents), have advised Noonsite that new health restrictions have come into force with immediate effect.

 This means that the crew of any vessel entering an Egyptian port must have a Health Certificate if they have departed from one of the following countries:

  •  Somalia
  • Sudan – A Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate is also required.
  • Yemen
  • Bangladesh
  • Brunei Dar Salam

However, neither a health certificate or Yellow Fever certificate is required if the boat spends a minimum of seven days at sea after leaving any of these ports before arriving at a port in Egypt.

As Reported by:

Prince of the Red Sea

Noonsite has not independently verified this information.
