Is Egypt Considered to be in Europe for Travel insurance Purposes?

Although Egypt is in Africa, the risk associated with travelling to certain areas of Egypt, such as Sharm El Sheikh, is not greater than travelling to most European countries. However, this is only applicable to certain limited areas of Egypt, other locations in Egypt are more dangerous and represent a higher risk, due to criminal activity and sustained terrorist attacks.

For example, since 17th April 2019, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) has advised ‘against all travel‘ to the Governorate of North Sinai due to the increased risk of terrorism. They also advise ‘against all but essential travel‘ to some areas west of the Nile Valley and Nile Delta.

These travel advisories can change from day to day, so Click here to see the latest FCDO travel advice for Egypt.

Therefore, it is extremely important that travellers going to this area ensure that they purchase Egypt Travel Insurance with sufficient cover for their trip. This is because many 'standard' travel insurance policies are likely to exclude travel to the areas mentioned above and other areas, where the FCDO has advised against ‘all travel‘ or ‘all but essential travel‘.

This is where High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance comes in, our policy is different from most travel insurance policies. High Risk Voyager Travel Insurance provides cover to the destinations in Egypt where the FCDO advises against travel.

Why Do I Need Travel Insurance to Egypt?

In addition to the increased risk of crime and terrorism, Egypt also has no reciprocal healthcare agreement with the UK or the European Union. This means that you will not be able to use your EHIC or GHIC in case of a medical emergency whilst visiting Egypt.

If you do not have the appropriate travel insurance to cover your trip to Egypt, consequently, you will be required to pay any costs associated with the medical treatment you receive, from mild sunstroke to more serious medical issues.
