When planning a trip abroad this year, there are many factors to consider that can be more complex than simply choosing a hotel or entertainment. The quarantine restrictions that were prevalent during the peak of the coronavirus infection have resulted in new entry restrictions in some countries, and the unstable security situation in certain regions requires spending more time researching your itinerary.

Surrey Live reports that travelers planning to depart from Heathrow and Gatwick airports to specific destinations should consider the security level in those countries. In particular, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) advises against traveling within 20 kilometers of the Egyptian and Libyan borders due to insecure security conditions and the potential for escalation near Israel and Gaza.

However, those intending to travel to Egypt should be aware of the visa requirements and must have vaccinations and certificates for the following diseases upon arrival: measles, mumps, and rubella; yellow fever; polio; hepatitis A and B; rabies; and typhoid.

Passport rules for entering Egypt:

  • The passport must be valid for at least six months from the date of arrival.
  • A visa can be obtained online or at the nearest consulate, with a maximum validity of three months.
  • Travelers heading to resorts can obtain a free entry permit upon arrival.

Travel warnings also apply to Cyprus. Although there have been no recent alarming reports, the proximity to Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Syria makes this destination potentially unsafe for tourism.

Passport regulations for entry to Cyprus:

  • Passports issued after October 1, 2018, are now only valid for 10 years. However, for passports issued before October 1, 2018, additional months may be added if the passport was renewed earlier.
  • The passport should have an "expiration date" of at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave.
