The Egyptian Cabinet has approved facilities on entry tourist visas to Egypt for holders of the Hayya card designated for World Cup fans in Qatar.
It is a chance to benefit from the promotion of Egyptian tourism during the World Cup period.
All hotels in Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh will offer a discounted rate on accommodation prices online for World Cup fans with the Hayya Card.
The Cabinet also announced cooperation with airlines and the Ministry of Civil Aviation to provide flights from Qatar to Egypt during this period.
The Qatar 2022 World Cup is being held for the first time in the Middle East and in an Arab capital after years in which European countries took over the organization of the World Cup, with the exception of a few times when the tournament went to Asia, Africa and America.
Over the course of 29 days, the tournament will witness 64 matches, where the group stage will be held from November 20 to December 2, after which the knockout round will start with the round of 16 between December 3 and 6, and the quarter-finals will be held on December 9 and 10.
The semi-finals will be on December 13th and 14th, with the match to determine the third-placed player on the 17th of the same month, and the competitions will be closed on December 18, coinciding with Qatar’s National Day at Lusail Stadium.
