Egypt, Oman, and the Maldives seem to be re-opening, at least for scuba diving. I would not hesitate to visit those places or any place in the world this year. I have booked trips to Antarctica and Argentina this November and December. (Total solar eclipse on December 14.) Antarctica is looking very doubtful; cautiously optimistic about Argentina.
Umm, one of my main offices is in Cairo which I should have visited last month. They are having one hell of a time with COVID. I shut the office down temporarily. No way I would suggest a good time to visit or fly through.
