Many Israelis are due to cross the Taba border crossing to Sinai, Egypt, in the coming week, where they will spend Chol Hamoed. The peninsula is considered one of the most sought-after destinations among the Israeli tourist at this time of year, and you can see it in the long lines that register there.
The same long lines are expected to occur at the entrance to Sinai and also back to Israel, since many Israeli tourists cross the border. Videos obtained by Israel Hayom show that very long lines have already begun in recent days, with Israelis waiting at the border crossing reporting long hours of waiting. The reasons for the long lines are different and varied, but the main one is the tens of thousands of tourists from Israel who are expected to visit Sinai throughout the High Holidays.

If you plan to move to Sinai, it is recommended to bring pre-purchased fees and arrive at less busy times, as Taba Crossing is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is also important to remember that if you are passing with a car, make sure that it does not have cameras and that it is not a diesel or four-by-four vehicle, as there is a prohibition on the passage of such vehicles.
