Immigration Minister Nabila Makram said that though her ministry has received numerous requests from Egyptians left stranded in Italy and Spain to return home, bringing them back currently is ‘very difficult’ given the precarious situation in the two countries. The minister urged that they follow the precautionary measures that Italy and Spain announced. Sources within EgyptAir confirmed it would organize a flight to return Egyptians left stranded in the US by the coronavirus pandemic before the end of this week. Minister of Immigration and Egyptian Expatriates Nabila Makram discussed with Minister of Civil Aviation Mohamed Manar Enabah operating airlines to New York and Washington to bring stranded Egyptians back home. EgyptAir previously said it operate flights to London, Paris and Kuwait to fly home Egyptians left stranded there.
