Yellow fever is not a factor to worry about in Cairo....

As to your diabetes tablets,just carry what you need in its original box with you name on you should be fine.

Lastly enjoy egypt 👌🏽

Just to clarify the yellow fever advice.

This only applies if you are entering Egypt from an area where the disease is prevalent, and is required by the Egyptian authorities. As the UK doesn't fall into this category, you don't need the vaccination certificate.

Strictly speaking, If you’re travelling from a yellow fever infected area, then the Egyptian authorities will normally require a vaccination certificate before admitting you into the country. If you’re travelling in transit through a yellow fever infected area, then the Egyptians may require such a certificate.
