The ministries of social solidarity and tourism have decided to offer an exceptional allowance of EGP 500 to tour guides for four months to help them face the economic repercussions of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), especially as classes at schools and universities will start soon.
More than 12,000 registered tour guides will receive this cash support as of next Tuesday, Social Solidarity Minister Neveen el Qabag said in press statements on Friday 04/09/2020.
Qabag added the beneficiaries can receive the monthly allowance from post offices across the nation.
She asserted that the state has been keen on providing all means of social protection and support for its citizens at all times.
