The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has launched its first official website after merging the two portfolios of tourism and antiquities into one ministry.
It is also the first official service website for the ministry to be launched in several years, the ministry said announced in a press release on Monday 8/8/2022.
The ministry noted that the pilot launch of the website is to be followed by regular improvements and updates to introduce new digital services and keep visitor abreast of the latest developments in the tourism and antiquities industry.
For the first time, up to 50 per cent of the ministry's services will be available through the website, including license procedures for restaurants and travel agents, tourist program notices, ticket reservation for museums and archeological sites, as well as the services offered on the Egyptian Umrah web portal, the ministry said.
The website also provides introductory and informational services covering all details related to the scope of work, tasks and competencies of the Tourism and Antiquities Ministry and its affiliated bodies, and the components of tourism infrastructure in Egypt.
It also provides information on tourism-related legislation and promotional campaigns, not to mention a monthly E-Magazine published by the ministry.
The move is part of a ministerial digital transformation strategy to digitize all its services for a streamlined, quick, and accurate delivery of services.
The website was established in coordination and cooperation with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology in accordance to a protocol signed between the two ministries.
