Text: Avoid non-essential travel (with regional advisories)

Some prescribed and over-the-counter medicines that are available in Canada are considered controlled substances in Egypt, and are not allowed into the country without proof of prescription. If you arrive in Egypt without the original physician’s prescription for your medication, you could be detained, and may be subject to prosecution and a jail sentence. Contact the Embassy of Egypt in Ottawa for more information.
