Egypt Visa Information

Updated: 10th July 2017

Visa Requirements

Visas are required by all visitors to Egypt. It still remains possible for nationals of some countries to procure their tourist visa upon arrival at Cairo International Airport. As of 01 July 2017, the cost of a tourist visa was set to rise to USD60 and is payable in USD (though as of 01 Sep 2017, USD25 is still only being collected. The increase maybe applied at any time so you should budget for the higher cost ie USD60). Although not official a visa can near always also be paid in equivalent GBP or Euro according to the exchange rate of the day. Please note that in the event of visa refusal at port of entry, On The Go Tours cannot be held responsible.

Contrary to the above, the Egyptian Embassy recommends that all visitors to Egypt procure a visa in advance of arrival. Please contact your nearest Egyptian Embassy or Consulate for application forms, processing times and costs.
