Qadi reviewed the incentives offered by Egypt to attract more tourists and encourage tour operators to organize tourist trips to it, and to provide many electronic services to tourists during their visit to Egypt.
Among these services is the activation of the text messaging service for tourists upon their arrival in Egypt to welcome them and have access to the ministry’s hotline to receive suggestions and or answer complaints and respond to any inquiries; this will also give quick access to police and ambulance emergency services.
