The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities started operating an e-ticket reservation system at 22 archaeological areas and museums including the Mummification Museum, Luxor Museum, and the Esna Temple in Luxor, and the Dendera Temple in Qena, as part of the ministry’s plan for digital transformation.
The ministry’s plan for digital transformation aims to activate the e-tickets system in 30 archaeological sites and museums open for visits, which is scheduled to be fully implemented by the end of 2022, Khaled Sherif, Assistant Minister of Tourism and Antiquities for Digital Transformation, explained.
Sherif said that operating the e-ticket system will greatly contribute to improving the experience of Egyptian and foreign visitors and speeding up the process of entering museums and archaeological sites, making it easier, and at the same time will provide the exact number of visitors, which contributes to tightening control over the entry and exit process, and prevent the use of forged tickets.
Sherif said that the digital transformation projects undertaken by the Tourism Ministry contributes as well to raising the efficiency and capabilities of workers at the ticket and collection counters, and introduce them to modern technology systems.
Islam Mamoun, director of the company responsible for implementing the e-ticketing project, stressed that the company is making every effort to provide all requirements for the implementation of the project in accordance with the time plan set by the ministry.
