EgyptAir issued new guidelines for passengers seeking travel to the United Kingdom after Britain added Egypt and several countries to its red list of destinations that oblige hotel quarantine upon arrival starting 8 June.

According to a statement on Friday, passengers cannot travel internationally or within the UK, unless for work, education and other legally permitted exemptions.

The travelers arriving to Britain will be subjected to 10-day mandatory quarantine, with those with no possibility of self-isolation at hotels or others will be required to do so at a facility provided by the government.

They will have to undergo a PCR test on or before day 2 upon return to the UK, with another PCR test on the eighth day of self-quarantine.

Passengers arriving in the UK, even through transit, must provide the Passenger Locator Form ahead of arrival.

The updated guideline comes few days after the UK added Egypt, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Costa Rica, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Trinidad and Tobago to its red list, which has the toughest travel restrictions.

People arriving in the UK from these destinations will be required to stay in a quarantine hotel for 10 days at a fixed cost of £1,750 per adult, according to the British government.
