Change of Travel Plans – The COVID Curse Strikes Again!

I apologize that I haven’t posted for a few weeks, but after reading this post you will understand why. Just when I thought things might be opening back up, I have once again been struck by the COVID travel curse. If you follow my blog closely, you are probably aware of my plans to visit Egypt, Jordan, and Israel this autumn. Needless to say, the Delta Variant has thrown me a curve ball, and once again I have a change of travel plans for this year. For the past several weeks I have been busy changing my current plans and making new ones.

COVID Travel Restrictions and What Needs to Change

What sets this pandemic a part from many of the past pandemics that we have to compare it to is that the past pandemics have all dealt with strains of the flu virus, where COVID-19 is a Coronavirus. We haven’t had any Coronavirus pandemics in modern history with which to compare to this pandemic to determine how long it may last. With so much uncertainty, it would be wise to start planning how we might adapt to living and traveling during the pandemic instead of just waiting for it to end. This includes creating a unified set of COVID travel restrictions and tracking methods.

Jordan Entrance Requirements – Passport, VISA, Customs, and Immunization Requirements for Visitors

If you are traveling to Jordan from outside of the country, you should be aware of the Jordan entrance requirements for visitors before you start planning your travel. If you do not meet the passport, VISA, or immunization requirements, you will be denied entry into Jordan. This is not something that I would wait until the last minute to take care of as you might not have enough time to sort out any issues at the last minute should you run into them.

To assist you in making sure you meet the necessary requirements to visit Egypt, I have outlined all of the requirements you need to be concerned about in this article.  Furthermore, I have also created the handy checklist I linked below for you to use as a point of reference and to track all of the requirements as you meet them.

Egypt Entrance Requirements – Passport, VISA, Customs, and Immunization Requirements for Visitors

If you are traveling to Egypt from outside of the country, you should be aware of the Egypt entrance requirements for visitors before you start planning your travel. If you do not meet the passport, VISA, or immunization requirements, you will be denied entry into Egypt. This is not something that I would wait until the last minute to take care of as you might not have enough time to sort out any issues at the last minute should you run into them.

Have a Back-up Plan for your Travel Plan

Expect the unexpected. Rarely is that old adage proven true as often as it is in the context of traveling. But some surprises aren’t as cool as seeing the Taj Mahal or visiting the golden city of Jaisalmer. With that in mind, it is important now more than ever to have the necessary coverage for your trip in the event that any delays or cancellations occur.
