Diving site to partially reopen in South Sinai

Diving sites are to resume from today in Egypt's South Sinai region. Six nature reserve sites will be available to use for guided tours as per guidelines from the Ministry of Environment.

The decision was made in coordination with the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and local authorities in South Sinai, as part of the ministry’s efforts to achieve sustainable development in the reserves, support eco-tourism activities, preserve natural resources, and support tourism workers. South Sinai is a crucial tourism hotspot in Egypt and the region. 

Diving activities in Egypt have been suspended for 9 months to curb COVID-19. Egypt witnessed a rise in COVID-19 cases but it had overall fared better than some neighbouring countries. South Sinai itself is one of the least infected regions.
