Egypt has allowed hotels to run at full capacity while observing strict coronavirus precautionary measures, an official at the Ministry of Tourism said on Sunday.
Assistant Minister Abdel Fattah al-Asi told Reuters the decision had already come into effect.
Egyptian hotels had been running at 70 percent of capacity since July due to COVID-19 regulations. Tourism accounts for up to 15 percent of Egypt's national output, and is a key source of foreign currency.
Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Monday that he ended the state of emergency in the country for the first time in years, the president wrote in a Facebook post.
